For undergraduate and graduate courses in children's literature. This text is unique, in that it blends an appreciation for children's books across genres while acquiring meaningful literature-based, response-centered strategies to include in literacy programs. Effectively balancing the importance of both the literature and the reader from an educational perspective, the book is organized around five main celebrations as a framework for building a bridge between reader response theory, quality children's literature, and exemplary literature-based practice.
