Good introduction to subject,
By A Customer
This review is from: An Introduction to Children's Literature (Paperback) (OPUS) (Paperback)
Having read Mr. Hunt's book as a part of a graduate course in Chldren's litteratur, I have found it to be a good introduction to the subject. The language of the book is accessible for a non-native speaker like myself, and one gets a good overview of the key developments in the genre through the last couple of centuries. Be aware that it has a British focus, and only discusses American litterature that have been important from a British perspective.
