Literature with Children.
Cohen, Monroe D., Ed.
Articles concerning the teaching of literature to children are presented. "Providing Balanced Contacts with Literature for Children" covers the potential of literature in the curriculum. In "The Classics in Children's Literature," a classic is defined as a book or story or poem that usually has long outlived its author. "Fostering Lifetime Reading Habits at Home and School" points out that style in reading and taste in selecting are significant in the reading guidance parents and teachers offer to children. In "Children as Critics," it is pointed out that literary criticism is a cumulative developmental process and that all readers can and must be critics. "Records of Children's Reading" gives suggestions for keeping records of the child's listening and reading. "Enjoying Poetry with Children" points out that the young child comes to school an essentially poetic being and presents a list of well-known children's poets. Remaining articles are entitled: "Choral Reading in the Classroom,""Storytelling,""Dramatizing Literature,""Creative Experiences with Literature,""Using Multi-Media Experiences with Literature," and "Teacher Resources for Literature with Children."
