KIRKUS REVIEW

For anyone concerned with ""the quality and validity of children's experiences with literature,"" this is a thoroughly contemporary, many-faceted discussion of problems and potentials which transcends its academic origin (August, 1966 Conference of the Graduate Library School, University of Chicago). The authors of the collected papers are specialists in related disciplines, creative writers of recognized excellence, educators and critics; their topics range from ""psychological significance"" to ""children's responses"" and all are treated with becoming forthrightness and absence of sentimentality. Librarians and teachers must read; parents should.
