Education: Children's Literature

About this guide.

This online guide is developed specifically for those doing research in children's literature. It provides a recommended list of resources, encompassing print materials, electronic databases, and selected Internet resources. This guide should be of help to students, researchers, parents, and those just looking for a good children's book.

Because the study of children's literature draws from disciplines such as history, sociology, psychology, and literature in general, you may need to consult resources in those fields also.
