This book would be very useful in teaching children's literature to a classroom. It is well written and easy to follow. ( )

My library science professor promised we would actually like reading this textbook, and she certainly is not wrong. Tunnell writes in a very easy, natural way without being overly simplistic. The information provided in the book is useful and can be applied immediately.

For instance, I just the suggestions of the "favorites" at the end of nearly every chapter to create reading lists for the teachers.

I will indeed continue to use this book throughout my career as a librarian. ( )
