This textbook is a wealth of information on the origins, classification, and sources of Children's Literature (which is the metric it should be reviewed upon, rather than whether it fits a particular worldview). However, if your sensibilities are easily wounded by approaching religious texts as stories, rather than as absolute truths, I suggest you look elsewhere.

The book is good and full of information for the class and fulfills the needs of the class. I had used it before and think that there are some newer reviews out there, so I would expect some updates added to a newer edition.

All in all, I passed the first class with an A and the second with a B.

It is a very good book for the class and I couldn't tell you if there are an better available yet.

This was easy to read on the kindle and on my computer. It is formatted just like the book, it's like you are flipping the pages of the textbook itself. With that being said, it did have the downside of not being readable on the basic kindles, just the color ones.

6 of 21 people found the following review helpful By Clammyweed on November 22, 2013
Format: Paperback
The authors of this textbook have included a section titled “The Bible as Literature.” In this section, the writers have taken the stance that the Bible is a work of fiction, and they have categorized it with other works of fiction such as fairy tales, myths, and fables. This treatment of the Bible is incompatible to the religious beliefs of millions of Christian and Jewish people who see the Bible as “Holy Writ”, Holy Scripture”, or “Sacred Scripture.” Christianity and Judaism are not the only religions to hold their canonical collection of texts as sacred and divine works of revelation and truth. Followers of the Islam religion believe the Qur'an to be the revealed word of God-verbatim. People of the Hinduism religion hold that the Vedas was directly revealed (as heard from) by the Hindu God Brahma. Yet, the authors fail to include these highly regarded religious texts. Are they claiming that only the Bible is filled with fairy tales? Additionally, the authors state that the Bible is literature of the “Western world of thought.” Are they purporting that people in these regions are all alike without religious diversity? Could it be that if the Quran and Vedas were treated as fables in their book that it might be viewed by some as blasphemy or sacrilege? Through their cultural insensitivity, these authors have certainly marginalized the religious beliefs of millions of people.
