Summary

"Literature for Young Children" is designed to support preservice as well as inservice teachers by helping them recognize high-quality and developmentally appropriate children's books to share with PreK-3 children. Other goals of this text include explaining how to use children's literature to help develop children's language skills and their intellectual capacity, how to encourage healthy social and moral development, and how to nurture children's creativity. Text discussions cover both contemporary and classic literature for young children and provide teachers, parents, and child-care professionals opportunities to talk about reading while engaging children in experiences with good books. Teachers and day-care professionals will find myriad practical strategies, extensive book lists, and relevant websites valuable for PreK-3 curriculum planning.
