About this title


Using a genre approach (poetry, fantasy, biography, contemporary realism, etc.), this book provides an excellent overview of the field, yet still focuses on crucial information and theory necessary to judge, to enjoy, and to use children's books. Brings the reader up-to-date with important influences in the field, such as specific trends in censorship, electronic resources, picture books for older readers, and multicultural books. Provides systematic organization to reveal the history, structure, and content of children's literature to build a knowledge base to which information can be added as new books appear.
