Full text not available from this repository.


The last decade has seen an unprecedented growth in the attention given to children's literature, both within the academy and beyond it. Children's fiction is now a vigorous and diverse area taught throughout the English-speaking world at undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral level, in English departments and in centres for the study of childhood, besides its longstanding role as a component of degrees in Education, Library and Information Studies. Teaching children's fiction is the result of a collaboration by a group of experienced teachers and scholars in the field, and explores the most effective ways to study and teach the subject. Each of the essays in this book focuses on a different aspect of children's literature studies, and blends expository information with ideas for practical classroom applications. Including a comprehensive collection of resources for those planning and teaching courses in children's fiction, this first book in the 'Teaching the New English' series will be invaluable for all higher-education teachers of children's fiction.
