LITERATURE AND THE CHILD, 7th Edition, covers the two major topical areas of children's literature—the genres of children's literature (picture books, folklore, etc.) and the use of children's literature in the classroom. Deliberately concise, the book offers succinct yet beautifully written and illustrated discussions that reflect the tone and feel of children's books. Featuring discussions of the latest works of children's literature, the text includes coverage of the growing importance of young adult literature as well as expanded emphasis on upper-level children's literature and adolescent literature. The authors pay careful attention to diversity in children's literature and equip students with practical, research-based teaching ideas.
