Summary

"Using a "facts-only" approach for students and their instructors, renowned authors Carol Lynch-Brown and Carl Tomlinson offer an abundance of examples to illustrate how to use children's literature in the classroom. Part One of the book covers current trends and the introductory material students need in order to begin selecting, reading, and evaluating children's trade books. Part Two defines and describes specific genres of literature and discusses the types of books that fall within the categories. Part Three presents curriculum and teaching strategies."--BOOK JACKET.
