Product Information
THE JOY OF CHILDREN'S LITERATURE, 2nd Edition, provides in-depth coverage of children's literature with integrated reading methods in a concise, accessible format. The compact length allows for time to read the numerous children's books highlighted in the text. Johnson emphasizes that reading, writing, discussing, and finding pleasure in children's books are essential to the ability to recognize and recommend literature, and ultimately, to the ability to share the joy of children's literature with children themselves. The book is divided into three main parts. Part I introduces foundational concepts necessary to the study of children's literature, including child development and the history and scope of children's literature. Part II analyzes a different literary genre in each chapter, providing a history of the genre, a consideration of its role in modern children's literature, key books in the genre, and discussion. Part III considers the usage of children's literature in the classroom, with practical advice for teaching.
