Language, Literature, and the Land of Nod.
Palmer, William S.
The author emphasizes the importance of imagination in literature for children and suggests that teachers can use books of fantasy and fiction in teaching emotional and creative responses as well as concepts and facts. In particular, the author discusses teaching about temporal and spatial relationships and explains how imaginative books combined with appropriate questioning from the teacher can help the child understand and appreciate new information. He suggests that reading can be introduced to children for enjoyment and that enjoyment of books will lead children to ask questions and assistance of their teacher. References are included. (AL)
