Literature for Young Children.
Glazer, Joan I.
Intended for use by preservice and inservice teachers, day care providers, and all who work with preschool and primary age children, this book focuses on children's literature as an art form and on the ways it supports children's growth and development. The first two chapters describe the range of literature currently available and demonstrate how standards of literary excellence can be applied to these works. Chapter three advocates grouping books for presentation so children will discern the interrelationship of all literature. Chapters four through eight focus on the opportunities books offer for supporting children's development in language, intellect, personality, morality, and creativity. The final chapter shows the many options a teacher has in presenting any one book, gives suggestions for determining appropriate approaches, and repeats guidelines for evaluating a literature program.
