O’Neal, Texas State University This is an engaging and informative comprehensive introduction to children’s literature, with a strong focus on pedagogical strategies for pre-service and practicing elementary and middle school teachers. - Dr. Marion Hussong, Richard Stockton College of New Jersey "[This] book is wonderfully written: The prose is lucid and truly enjoyable to read.
