Evelyn Arizpe (Editor), Vivienne Smith (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology

Abstract

We are fascinated by text and we are fascinated by reading. Is this because we are in a time of textual change? Given that young people always seem to be in the vanguard of technological change, questions about what and how they read are the subject of intense debate. Children as Readers in Children’s Literature explores these questions by looking at the literature that is written for children and young people to see what it tells us about them as readers.
