Themes and Values in Selected Children's Literature.
Shachter, Jaqueline
Children's books by successful writers may stimulate young people to think about philosophical questions, prompting lively discussions. Such books not only have literary value but also encourage children to consider matters central to the human condition. Teachers at the intermediate grade level and above can stimulate discussions of ethical values and moral issues with these four books by Newbery Medal winners: "The Planet of Junior Brown" by Virginia Hamilton, "Island of the Blue Dolphins" by Scott O'Dell, "The Arm of the Starfish" by Madeleine L'Engle, and "The Great Gilly Hopkins" by Katherine Paterson.
