Children’s Books: A Legacy for the Young; Alice K. Swinger

Summary:

While the book is dated (1981), it makes compelling points on the value of children’s literature. It takes the reader through the chronological development of children’s literature from the 1900s and on. It emphasizes how important General, non-textbook reading is in the school environment. Also, it provides suggestions for activities for teachers to use in the classroom. Not includes book titles for literature, but it also includes titles in the genres of math and science.

Opinion:

Though out-dated, I found this book to be informative. I would recommend it to any would-be librarian, teacher and parent.
