An accessible, concise, and engaging text on children’s literature with full-color illustrations

Inviting and brief, Literature for Children: A Short Introduction, 9th Edition provides a solid understanding of the foundations of children’s literature across genres, from picture books to folk literature. In his usual engaging style, author David Russell stresses that teachers need to first appreciate literature in order to teach it effectively. The text’s user-friendly format includes a wealth of real examples and its thoughtful presentation allows students to spend more time reading actual children’s books. Substantially revised with full-color illustrations and a new organization, the 9th Edition incorporates a variety of updates, providing a more streamlined introduction to the elements, genres, and themes in children’s literature.
