Literature and the Young Child.
Foster, Florence P.
The values, selection, and presentation of literature for young children are described in this pamphlet. The values discussed are educational importance and self-concept and interpersonal relationship development. The selection criteria include defining a good book, identifying types of literature which appeal to children, and noting the level, content, language, and reality of a book. A note is made of what assistance is available in selecting children's literature. In the section describing presentation, techniques are listed for both telling and reading a story. Suggestions are made for designing a reading center. Additional ways of stimulating interest in literature are listed. Finally, many suggestions are given for helping children to create their own stories. A short bibliography is included. (JS)
