The joy of children's literature
Good Content but Not the Best Style

This book has a lot of good information about children's literature, but I have a couple problems with it. When the author mentions social issues, it seems as though most of the time it's talking about the same social issue. Also, the chapters all have the same basic structure, and not all of them really need all of the sections that are in them, so it tends to get really repetitive.

I am taking a grad class in children's literature research. This resource has been invaluable. It is thorough and covers many genres.

I wish I had bought this book instead of renting it.

I needed a copy quickly and was thrilled to find the "instructor's copy" at such a good price. The book arrived sooner than was promised and I was elated because I was prepared for class.
