Butler, Francelia, Ed.
Because this periodical about children's literature was published during 1976, the United States Bicentennial Year, it features contemporary essays on American children's literature from the colonial age to the present. Other essays discuss the current state of children's literature and the practices used in its criticism, German and Italian literature, racism and sexism in children's nonfiction, mid-nineteenth-century American literature, and Paul Zindel's work. The book review section examines major trends and issues in children's literature and its study. An extensive listing of children's books in the collection of the Hughes Library of Rubgy, Tennessee, is included important because it is the first exploration of a collection that contains only books from the Victorian period. Lists of contributors, editors, and suggested research topics are included. (RL)
