In the last few decades a number of European scholars have paid an increasing amount of attention to children's literature in translation. This book not only provides a synthetic account of what has been achieved in the field, but also makes us fully aware of all the textual, visual and cultural complexities that translating for children entails.... Students of this subject have had problems in finding a book that attempted an up-to-date and comprehensive review of the field. Gillian Lathey's Reader does just this.

We are fascinated by text and we are fascinated by reading. Is this because we are in a time of textual change? Given that young people always seem to be in the vanguard of technological change, questions about what and how they read are the subject of intense debate. Children as Readers in Children’s Literature explores these questions by looking at the literature that is written for children and young people to see what it tells us about them as readers. The contributors to this book are a group of distinguished children’s literature scholars, literacy and media specialists who contemplate the multiple images of children as readers and how they reflect the power and purpose of texts and literacy. Contributors to this wide-ranging text consider: How books shape the readers we become Cognitive and affective responses to representation of books and reading The relationship between love-stories and reading as a cultural activity Reading as ‘Protection and Enlightenment’ Picturebooks as stage sets for acts of reading Readers’ perceptions of a writer This portrayal of books and reading also reveals adults’ beliefs about childhood and literacy and how they are changing. It is a theme of crucial significance in the shaping of future generations of readers given these beliefs influence not only ideas about the teaching of literature but also about the role of digital technologies. This text is a must-read for any individual interested in the importance of keeping literature alive through reading.

This book has a unique integrated approach that discusses what teachers need to know about children’s books, including: the history of children’s books, themes in children’s books, genres, conventions of children’s books, their basic elements, the creative process – how and why children’s books are written, and how to teach using children’s books. Students will learn about social contexts of children’s literature, authoring processes, mediation techniques, children’s storymaking, literature and literacy approach for classroom teaching, classroom book collections, multicultural concerns, reader response practices, censorship, gender issues, book awards and prizes, evaluation techniques, different interpretation methods, the different literacies available to children today, and literature-based assessment. A strong emphasis on multiculturalism and practical experiences is evident throughout the chapters.

Ranging from Victorian picture stories to Disney classics and contemporary works on environmental issues, pop-up and movable books have amused, enlightened, and entertained children and adults for almost 150 years. Although most movable books are designed primarily for children, a significant number of fiction and nonfiction titles are intended for adult readers. Despite their enormous popularity, they are rarely reviewed or included in lists of children's books, and are seldom purchased for circulating libraries. Many are unindexed. Montanaro identifies, indexes, and describes over 1,600 titles by publication date, personal names of contributors, and series titles.
