"But What Does This Have To Do with Kids?": Literary Theory and Children's Literature in the Teacher Education Classroom.
Journal of Children's Literature, v24 n2 p32-46 Fall 1998
Explores the relationship between literary theory and children's literature in teacher-education classrooms, positioning itself in the gap between books and children, texts and readers, and theory and practice in literature. Concludes by offering the author's experience as an example of the richness the use of literary theory brings to an understanding of two texts written and recently published for children. (SC)
