Taking Children's Literature Seriously: Reading for Pleasure and Social Change.
Language Arts, v74 n6 p446-53 Oct 1997
Investigates how multiple stances in reading can reveal new insights into texts. Demonstrates three ways that a single text can be read from the perspectives of a pleasurable reading, a postcolonial reading, and a critical multicultural reading. Argues that readers will confirm existing meanings determined by others' ideologies unless they are able to read for social change and justice. (SR)
