Ten Values of Children's Literature.
Carlson, Ruth Kearney
Children's literature is discussed in terms of 10 values which it may bring to readers. Some of these values are personal, involving pleasure, imagination, literary appreciation, or a chance to identify with the hero in a book. Some of the values are functional, involving information about today's world; discussions of art, music, or literature; or accounts of factual history. Each of the 10 values discussed is illustrated by a listing of several books which deal with that value on levels for children of various ages. A 91-item bibliography is included. (MD)
