From a well-known, well-respected author team—a concise resource for successfully teaching reading to children. 

With a goal of reawakening pre- and in-service teachers to the joy of reading, this widely popular book focuses on teaching reading to children through today’s rich array of available trade books. The book includes the most important knowledge about teaching literature to children and it does so clearly, concisely, and directly using recommended book lists, examples, figures, and tables in combination with narrative and prose.

The 9th Edition of Essentials of Children's Literature features new information on connecting to the Common Core Standards; a new chapter on illustration and visual elements (Chapter 11); addition of graphic novels to the chapter on picturebooks (Chapter 5); reorganization of Chapter 10, “Historical Fiction;” and updating throughout, including a new section on book-related apps, additional useful resources integrated into each genre chapter; updated book lists and trends; and more.
