This book has a lot of good information about children's literature, but I have a couple problems with it. When the author mentions social issues, it seems as though most of the time it's talking about the same social issue. Also, the chapters all have the same basic structure, and not all of them really need all of the sections that are in them, so it tends to get really repetitive.

It's a required book for a class, and thankfully we were aloud to have the earlier edition! It's a good book and definitely something that is a good book to learn about children's literature.

I am taking a grad class in children's literature research. This resource has been invaluable. It is thorough and covers many genres.
