Children's literature is a course which surveys a broad range of literature for children pre-school through the elementary grades. Picture books, poetry, folk tales, fantasy, realistic fiction and non-fiction will be read, discussed and evaluated. Students will explore the production and marketing of juvenile books; they will compare current trends in illustration and will practice the evaluation of children's books as literature. Story-telling techniques, reading aloud and the use of trade books in whole language instruction will be emphasized throughout the course.
