LALW205 Children’s Literature 3 cr.


What makes a children’s book a classic? We’ll find out as we read, analyze, and enjoy the best of the field–fantasies from “Peter Pan” to “Harry Potter,” realistic novels from “Anne of Green Gables” to “Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry,” and stories falling somewhere in between, like “The Secret Garden.” Though our emphasis will be on longer books for older children, we’ll also consider fairy tales and picture books. Final project: writing a “classic” children’s book, illustrating one, or both!
