A Bible of Children's Literature

I am finishing up my master's program soon. In doing research on Charlotte Huck, I found this book. It has so much "no nonsense" information in it! Everything Huck has said since the first edition of this book has been right on the money. I am a literacy coach for K-5, and I think that this book is by far the best resource I have. It tells which books to use for certain grade levels, genres, subject areas... AND it tells a little bit about the books that the authors chose. It is chock full of the history of reading, understanding why literature is the way it is, and resources for all areas. I recommend this book for anyone who teaches reading to children, or has a love of reading to his/her own children!

Children's Literature book personal review

I was required to purchase this book for a college course. I am very thankful that my instructer choose this book. It is full of wonderful examples of appropriate literature for children. I sat down one evening and read two chapters for the sheer joy of it. The only thing that I was unhappy with was that there was a lack of children's activities in regards to the poetry section. All and all, this is a exceptional book for anyone interested in children's literature.
