4 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in English and held by 320 libraries worldwide
[This text] is an overview written to shed light on children's literature and its use with young readers. [The authors'] job as teachers, whether university or elementary, is to introduce and illuminate children's books for our students. These books can offer insight and pleasure without having to be explained, analyzed, or used as objects of study. Yet some comment, if it is secondary to the books and does not become too self-important, can help teachers and children alike find their own ways to regarding reading. The goal of this text, then, is to provide a practical overview of children's books, offering a framework and background information while keeping the spotlight on the books themselves.-Pref.
