The product of a two-day symposium on children and children's books, this booklet features remarks of Elaine Moss, British author and critic, and Barbara Rollock, coordinator for children's services at the New York Public Library. Moss's speech discusses meeting children's need for books offering depth and involvement, while Rollock's talk explores obstacles and incitements to reading and examines the character of the young reading audience. The booklet concludes with brief remarks by three commentators: Cecily Truett, associate producer of "Studio See," South Carolina Educational Television; Ann Durell, vice president of children's books for E.P. Dutton; and Ethel Heins, editor of the "Horn Book Magazine." (MM)
