5.0 out of 5 stars Informative Essay 5 Sept. 2016
By Girl And Dogs Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Although this is a "very short" introduction, this book is packed with information about children's literature. Even though I have to read it for school, I couldn't put it down, because it was quite interesting. I have to write an informative essay about children's literature for English class. Hopefully, I will get a good grade on it. I highly recommend for anyone who wants to learn more about children's literature, its history, and become knowledgable on the topic.
