Teaching Children's Literature Cover

“This potpourri of essays, course descriptions, programs and resources is invaluable for any serious student or teacher in the field of literature for children and youth.”

Journal of African Children’s and Youth Literature

The thirteen essays that make up the first part of Teaching Children’s Literature highlight issues of canon, pedagogy, genre, and period. In part 2, fifteen course descriptions by experienced teachers offer a wealth of information on undergraduate courses, specific approaches to children’s literature, and workshops and graduate-level seminars. The remaining parts of the volume examine selected advanced programs of study throughout the United States and supply a variety of sources, including an extensive bibliography. The book concludes with a lively dialogue among Maurice Sendak, Dr. Seuss, and the volume editor.
