As an education major, I am finding this book breaks down the various aspects of reading to kids vs. reading for adults. Kids view things differently, so choosing books that are age & developmentally appropriate is important.
This would also be a good reference for anyone thinking of writing children's books. They talk about aspects of a story, of illustrations, and why some stories are 'good' why others aren't so much. There is more to this than I thought!

Had to buy for a Children's Literature college course. It was very helpful and well-organized.

A great resource for teachers in elementary. Has excellent recommended reading lists to give teachers ideas for resources and even has discussion questions that could be used in the classroom. I wish the paper was better quality as I would like to keep this book for a long time.

I bought this book for school. It has several of good stories within it that I really enjoyed reading but it was really the class that turned out to be a thumbs down.

Got an "A" out of the class worth every penny

Fun to read about the different styles of reading available for children. Fun to look at different ways to look at books in a new light.
The book covers all of the important elements in Children's Literature. The Appendix shows the Children's Book Awards. It is easy to read not to technical.
