Trudeau, Lyn – Brock Education: A Journal of Educational Research and Practice, 2018

Jaeger, Cora – Brock Education: A Journal of Educational Research and Practice, 2018
Tracking the depictions of animals in children's literature through history reveals not only what authors think about animals, but also what they think about the human experience and of childhood itself. As the word "animal" can be used both to mark the similarities and the differences between beasts and men, it makes sense then that…

Loza, Roxana – Brock Education: A Journal of Educational Research and Practice, 2018
Debates about "authentic" children's literature often focus on the question of who can legitimately write children's literature. Therefore, an author's age, race, and/or ethnicity, (dis)ability, and sexuality become important considerations in establishing credibility and authenticity. If we define children's literature by authorship,…

Williams, Catherine – Brock Education: A Journal of Educational Research and Practice, 2018
This article explores the topic of adulthood within children's literature.
