Editorial Reviews

Review

"An authoritative overview of media effects on children and adolscents . . . Singer and Singer anchor each section with a preliminary overview, a conclusion, and references at the end of each chapter. This readable handbook is certain to be an important resource for students, scholars, and researchers in a variety of disciplines."

(CHOICE)

"The Handbook provides an excellent overview of research on children's media. The level of detail of most chapters is astonishing. Many chapters are superbly written and provide research summaries accessible to all audiences. . . . The encyclopedic scope of the Handbook makes it the most comprehensive resource available about all aspects of children's media. . . . Dorothy and Jerome Singer deserve praise for their excellent introductions to each part of the handbook and their concluding remarks. . . .The Handbook is a testimony to their standing as leaders in the field of children's media."

More About the Author

My list of the greatest things in life is pretty short: Watching a 1-year-old walk. Tickling a 2-year-old. Listening to a 3-year-old talk about his day. Seeing my own little kids blossom into big kids.

Somewhere there's a parent and a child cuddled up together reading a book, maybe even under the covers by flashlight. And there is giggling and page-turning and flailing limbs and joy and snot and probably some farting. And how great is that?

It's the greatest.
