Summary

The Pleasures of Children's Literature, Third Edition, offers an overview of children's literature in the context of current professional discussion of children's literature and reading.

Focusing on controversial issues and designed to provoke thought and debate, this ground-breaking text examines literary response to and analysis of the entire field of literary texts written by adults for children.

The Pleasures of Children's Literature, Third Edition introduces and describes relevant current views in a number of disciplines, including literary theory; ideological, cultural and media studies; theories of visual culture and folklore; developmental and cognitive psychology; and pedagogical practice.

Noteworthy new author team Nodelman and Reimer offer introductions to a range of relevant questions and approaches, and give readers an overview of theoretical approaches current in literary studies and related disciplines. They offer readers insight into the ways these studies and approaches might illuminate both children's responses and their own responses to understanding children's literature.

Features:

  • Amplified discussions of the theoretical positions that underlie the materials covered make this a strong text for undergraduate and graduate-level courses.
  • The text clearly emphasizes how cultural contexts influence the ways in which everybody reads and responds to children's literature.
  • The text emphasizes the value of developing the importance of critical thinking for everyone, including child readers.


New To This Edition:

  • A new co-author, Mavis Reimer, helps clarify ideas, opinions, and reading experiences represented throughout.
  • More detailed descriptions of reading strategies and practices (Chs. 2 & 4) provide suggestions for using theoretical contexts in their interactions with texts to develop richer experiences and richer understanding of those experiences.
  • New and recent examples of novels and picture books have been incorporated throughout the text.
  • A reorganized discussion of children's literature in the context of ideological theory, feminist theories, and theories of masculinity, give readers an up-to-date overview of both children's literature criticism and literary studies (Ch. 10).
  • The chapter on the economic and cultural factors that influence what children's literature is produced and distributed has been expanded to two chapters (Chs. 6 & 7) with more breadth and perspective.
  • Includes updated and current academic, intellectual, cultural, and economic trends, and shows how children's literature is influenced by them (Chs. 3, 5, 6 & 9). Extensive discussion of the Harry Potter series illustrates trends in the business of publishing and selling children's books.
  • TECHNOLOGY ADVANTAGE--A new Companion Website (http://www.ablongman.com/nodelman3e) includes (1) additional information about children's literature, giving readers access to detailed listings of bibliographic resources and (2) content previously found in the Instructor's Manual, making this an interactive tool for both professors and students.
