This landmark volume is the first to bring together leading scholarship on childrena€™s and young adult literature from three intersecting disciplines: Education, English, and Library and Information Science. Distinguished by its multidisciplinary approach, it describes and analyzes the different aspects of literary reading, texts, and contexts to illuminate how the book is transformed within and across different academic figurations of reading and interpreting childrena€™s literature. Part one considers perspectives on readers and reading literature in home, school, library, and community settings. Part two introduces analytic frames for studying young adult novels, picturebooks, indigenous literature, graphic novels, and other genres. Chapters include commentary on literary experiences and creative production from renowned authors and illustrators. Part three focuses on the social contexts of literary study, with chapters on censorship, awards, marketing, and literary museums. The singular contribution of this Handbook is to lay the groundwork for colleagues across disciplines to redraw the map of their separately figured worlds, thus to enlarge the scope of scholarship and dialogue as well as push ahead into uncharted territory.We pull our draft website onto a large digital monitor, where we see pages 4 and 5 of a picture book, Harlem, written by Walter Dean Myers ... I liked her first book, The Hunger Games (2008), so Ia#39;d probably read that book without a trailer, but I like turning to these a€œquick ads for readinga€ for new suggestions. ... It has lots of learning spaces, many different information technologies, and librarians to help us.
