    • Abstract: Perhaps it is inevitable that in a polarized world, children's literature will function as a tool to aid in socializing children into particular loyalties by defining what it means to be a citizen of a given country, a member of a given social group, a believer in a given ideology. To be sure, young people may eventually reject the affiliations that their elders urge upon them, but adults nonetheless understand as a major part of their responsibility the task of telling children "who they are"—and who they should be. In ways both large and small, children's literature assists materially in this defining process, and as scholars of this literature, we thus devote considerable energy to exploring how the task is ...

  • A Tale of Two Wheatleys: The Biographical Fiction of Shirley Graham and
           Ann Rinaldi
    • Abstract: Once upon a time in West Africa, perhaps in 1753 or 1754, a little girl was born. When she was about seven, the little girl was taken from her home, put on a ship to North America, and sold as a slave. She was purchased by a Boston family, the Wheatleys, who named her Phillis. According to many sources, the family treated this little girl relatively kindly, encouraged her to learn, and connected her with important people. The young girl discovered that she loved to write. In fact, she was so good at writing poetry that people published her work in newspapers, magazines, and finally a book. Around the time that her book was published, in 1773, when the young woman was nearly twenty, she became free from slavery. She ... Read More

  • Our Canadian Girl: Technologies of Memory for Cartographies of Distress
    • Abstract: "Fiction," writes Michel de Certeau, "narrates one thing in order to tell something else" (202). In this article, I am interested in the layers of meaning, the "thing" and the "something else" narrated in the Our Canadian Girl series originally published by Penguin Books from 2001 to 2007.1 Like the better-known American Girl series, Our Canadian Girl is historical fiction written for elementary- and middle school–age readers, focused on girl characters whose everyday lives are set against a significant event in Canadian history.2 Each of the characters' series is written by a different author, and each character's story consists of four books. The girl characters are from diverse communities, living in different ... Read More

  • Gender in Contemporary French Children's Literature: The Role of Talents
           Hauts
    • Abstract: Children's literature in France commands a large market share: it accounts for almost twenty-one percent of all books published and represents fourteen percent of French publishers' revenue, not even counting schoolbooks (Syndicat 38). The production of French children's literature grew significantly in the 1970s as a result of democratization, whereby books for children were no longer the privilege of the upper classes. The first wave of scholarly attention to gender representations in children's literature also began in the 1970s in France and elsewhere,1 spurred by the second feminist wave,and led to a global UNESCO initiative to eliminate sexism from children's books and textbooks (Michel).Sylvie Cromer ...

  • Down Home: Going South in Rita Williams-Garcia's Novels
    • Abstract: I knew I had a piece of the South in me but I didn't know it was that much.Until recently, Rita Williams-Garcia's books have focused primarily on depicting urban experiences in the northeastern US. Violet Harris, in Using Multiethnic Literature in the K–8 Classroom, recalls that at the 1996 International Reading Association conference, Williams-Garcia said that "she felt a need to continue to write her stories because of her desire to write the stories of urban Blacks situated in a particular cultural milieu" (28). In Free Within Ourselves: The Development of African American Children's Literature, children's literature scholar Rudine Sims Bishop reflects on Williams-Garcia's work, writing that she "is able to ...

  • Posthuman Power: The Magic of Hybridity in the Harry Potter Series
    • Abstract: The popularity of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series seemed astonishing fifteen years ago when, in light of the record-breaking sales of the first three books, it was being lauded as the magic wand that would get children reading again.1 Now, after the publication of four more novels, eight associated films, two companion books, a stage production, a published screenplay, the first of a new set of films based on one of the companion books, and thousands of pages of fanfiction, the pervasiveness of Harry Potter in Western culture shows little sign of abating. As is often the case in the aftermath of success, the Harry Potter phenomenon (for "series" hardly seems to do justice to the current corpus) has attracted ... Read More

    • Abstract: The Art of Winnie-the-Pooh: How E. H. Shepard Illustrated an Icon. By James Campbell. Foreword by Minette Shepard. London: LOM Art, 2017.In this richly illustrated book, James Campbell traces the relationship between E. H. Shepard and A. A. Milne from their initial work together at Punch magazine through their collaborations on Milne's various books and related projects for children. Campbell's focus is on Shepard's side of this relationship, but he provides insights into how the two men worked together to create the now classic images of Milne's famous characters.Does Nonfiction Equate Truth' Rethinking Disciplinary Boundaries through Critical Literacy.

  • Prairie Fires: The American Dreams of Laura Ingalls Wilder by Caroline
           Fraser (review)
    • Abstract: In 1976, Donald Zochert published the first biography of Laura Ingalls Wilder. Written for a general audience, it included an appendix, "The Truth of the Little House Books," which revealed that the fictional series did not always align with Wilder's life. This information surprised fans and challenged narratives perpetuated by the author and her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane. Forty years later, scholars and fans remain hungry for details about the truth of the series, the lives of its author(s), and the process of its composition.As Wilder scholarship evolved, it became clear that to tell the story of Laura must also mean telling the story of her daughter. Biographers—including Janet Spaeth, William Anderson, John E. ... Read More

  • Between Generations: Collaborative Authorship in the Golden Age of
           Children's Literature by Victoria Ford Smith (review)
    • Abstract: Children play multiple roles in children's literature: fictional characters, real audience, inspirational muses, and, as Victoria Ford Smith proposes, active collaborators. Smith's goal in Between Generations is to resurrect a lost tradition of child-adult creative partnerships during the Victorian and Edwardian eras. These over-looked or forgotten collaborations show that child creators of the period exhibited more agency than we generally assume. Smith approaches these intergenerational collaborations through a historical lens, examining nineteenth-century theories of language acquisition and art education that challenged the perception of children as passive subjects, as well as actual creative partnerships such ...

  • British Hymn Books for Children, 1800–1900: Re-Tuning the History of
           Childhood by Alisa Clapp-Itnyre (review)
    • Abstract: In this dense and informative study, Alisa Clapp-Itnyre explores a remarkable phenomenon of the nineteenth century, the British children's hymn book. Even though this genre of children's literature is now little known, it represents what was once a pervasive phenomenon. Children sang hymns not only in church but also at school and at home, and hymn collections published especially for them proliferated to an extent not known before or since (3–4). In the face of various zero-sum paradigms proposed by some other children's literature scholars, such as that of adult versus child, this author argues that nineteenth-century British children's hymn singing not only empowered children but also tended to blur class ...

  • Big & Small: A Cultural History of Extraordinary Bodies by Lynne
           Vallone (review)
    • Abstract: Lynne Vallone's Big & Small is a pleasurable and provocative study. The book's main strengths are its coherent methodology and encyclopedic evidence. It argues that size "informs human identity and culture—as do race, gender,and class" (1). Vallone suggests that size is a cultural construct—based on the "human measure" she defines in the afterword—that influences the social interactions constituting human experience. As the title suggests, the book is divided into two volumes, big and small (though these topics are transposed in the text), and is "concerned with bodies both imaginary and real: thumblings, dwarfs, pygmies, giants, children, robots, and the obese" (4). One of the book's many triumphs is the ... Read More
