Summary

''A dazzling cornucopia of erudition and originality on a subject of grave concern in twenty-first century U.S. education and culture. Every page of Seth Lerer's brilliant book reminds us of the supreme and enduring value of childhood reading. This volume deserves the attention of all who care about the shaping of lives-educators on all levels, policy makers, psychologists, and parents, as well as scholars. Lerer writes that children''s literature is meant 'docere et delectare' (to instruct and to delight), and this is precisely what he himself has done in this fascinating book.''-Ellen Handler Spitz, University of Maryland, author of Inside Picture Books
