Description:

For Introduction to children's literature, language arts, and English methods courses. Through individual chapters on major genres and an emphasis on professional standards, the authors offer fresh ideas for sharing literature with children that will stimulate authentic responses; for using the Internet, the World Wide Web, and other technology and media to enhance children's experience of literature; for integrating literature into all elementary classrooms; and for encouraging children to take the literature they encounter in school back home to their parents and siblings. Believing that a love of literature will serve children for life, these authors aim to prepare prospective teachers to infuse literature into children's lives in a way that will foster a lifelong interest.
