    In this course, students examine children?s literature in its historical, cultural and literary contexts. Poetry, fiction, and nonfiction for children from infancy through adolescence are examined in the light of cultural and historical ideas about children and their development. Special attention is given to ways in which issues of culture, ethnicity, race, and gender are represented in children?s literature.
