Summary: This classic text shows readers how children's literature can capture the attention of K-8 students and foster a lifelong love of reading. It is the standard work in the field. The text covers learning about children's literature, understanding children's responses to literature, the history of children's literature, picture books and all the genres (beginning books, fantasy, poetry, realistic fiction, historical fiction, biography, and informational books), planning
the literature program, and extending and evaluating children's understandings of literature.
Features
  • The seventh edition has been revised to include the best of current children's books, while also including the classics. Over 900 new children's literature titles were added. Out of print books have been removed.
  • Extensive information technology material has been added.
  • The revision thoroughly incorporates multicultural books, not with a separate chapter on multicultural literature, but by integrating multicultural literature throughout. A special multicultural icon in chapter section headings highlights the multicultural coverage. Chapter 1 has a major section and chapters 5, 8, 9, and 10 all have subsections on Multicultural literature.
  • New and expanded features, including ''Into the Classroom,'' provide more classroom ideas for using children's literature.
  • The Database of Children's Literature is available online as well as in a free student CD-ROM packaged with every copy of the seventh edition. The Database will be periodically updated online.
  • The seventh edition features a gorgeous, full-color, bright new design with a superb cover illustration drawn by noted children's literature illustrator Greg Couch.
  • There are two new Curriculum Webs. The first in chapter 7 explores Lois Lowry's The Giver and shows how children might explore a work of fiction. The second in chapter 11 explores the science topic ''The World Beneath Your Feet'' and shows how a science topic could be explored through nonfiction and fiction books.
  • This is the classic reference work in children's literature. It is a ''coffee-table book'' - hardcover, large, lavishly illustrated with 340 color illustrations, and totally comprehensive.
  • The text is authored by Barbara Kiefer who also wrote the sixth edition.
  • The text comprehensively covers not only all the genres of children's literature, but also children's responses to literature, the history of children's literature, planning the literature program, and extending and evaluating children's understandings of literature.
  • Extended lists of recommended children's books are at the end of each chapter.
