From CCAC faculty: "This resource is incredibly detailed in terms of its chapters: it covers everything from the history of children's literature to fairy tales, fiction, and non-fiction (all required elements for the learning outcomes on the course master syllabus). As a bonus, the book contains a section on banned books, a topic I plan to organize the course around . It also delves into YA literature, which I plan to include in the course. The book in written in an engaging, conversational style that is superior to the textbook I was going to use. It also contains a multitude of links to outside resources: YouTube videos, fanfiction sites, articles, scholarly criticism, and more. Overall, I would strongly recommend this resource to my colleagues teaching Children's Literature as this 489-page resource truly covers every component of our course (and then some!)."
