This is great book for teachers to have on literacy, focusing on children's literature and strategies to figuring out if books or high quality. There are also strategies for teaching literature's content. ( )

I used this for my children's lit classes at WSU. Good overview; internet resources weren't always reliable. ( )

An incredibly thorough children's literature textbook, which can serve as a resource for genre study, history, publishing/reading trends, booklists, and children's developmental interests/choices ( )

This book helped me to understand the complexity of children's literature and made sense out of teaching it. I have learned that certain books can be used to teach more than just literature. Some poetry books help to foster writing while some non-fiction books help in the understanding of United States history. ( )
