Child Readers as Audience.
Glazer, Joan I.
Journal of Children's Literature, v25 n2 p6-17 Fall 1999
Discusses how looking at child readers as audience means looking at how books for children are defined, how child readers are described, and how childhood itself is regarded. Considers several other points such as understanding the evolving concept of childhood, acknowledging the publisher's perspective, identifying underlying ideologies, and listening to and empowering child readers.
