The purpose of this course is to provide students with the realization that children’s literature is to provide enjoyment and entertainment as well educational value. It will strive to encourage students to help children develop a love of literature and, therefore, become lifelong readers of books. Course content will stress that “the love of reading is caught, not taught.” Course content will provide information that will allow future educators to provide children with appropriate reading models and exposure to well written, appropriate literary works. This course will deal with content (knowledge of children’s books) and with method (how to use those books with children).
