Not the best Children's lit textbook I've ever used for a class. ( )
  bridgetrwilson | Mar 27, 2013 |
A particular strength of this textbook is its new second chapter entitled, "Issues and Fundamental Change in Children's Literature," which offers a useful overview of changes that are continuing to change the landscape of children's literature reading and publishing. Unlike many other texts that devote separate chapters to genres, this text focuses a great number of chapters to individual literary elements. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0205492185, Paperback)

Designed to facilitate the use of children's books from all genres, this exceptional resource helps teachers, librarians, and media specialists select the best children’s literature for the classroom, library, or home.

Unlike an anthology of children's literature, which includes selected chapters or text summaries, the Eighth Edition of this highly regarded book teaches how to select quality children's literature. Using the critical standards for all literature, examples of children’s books provide the basis for an explanation of critical principles and special issues in judging books for children.

Taking readers through the definitions of literary terms such as plot, character, theme, setting, point of view, style, and tone, Lukens provides sound criteria for assessing the merit of children's books. The book also includes chapters on rhymes, poetry, biography, and informational books. A new and enlarged section addresses censorship and a new chapter addresses the benefits of reading, its significance for children, and its growth in popularity among adults.
