Children's Literature Review

Print Version [PDF]


Children’s Literature Review, a multi-volume reference source, presents significant passages from published criticism of both contemporary and older works for children. Published annually and cross-referenced with Something About the Author, it contains articles about individual children’s authors, works of classic literature often read by young people and taught in high schools (e.g., To Kill a Mockingbird), and general topics of interest to teachers, librarians, and children’s literature scholars.

This list, originally compiled by staff at the Mary L. Williams Curriculum Materials Library at Oklahoma State University, highlights articles on special topics such as Australian children’s literature, children’s poetry, and the influence of Disney on children’s literature. Entries are arranged alphabetically by subject in the first list and by volume in the second. Articles marked with an asterisk (*) are available online only.

Children’s Literature Review is available in print through 2010 (S-Collection Reference S. 026.1 C537) and online.
