In his usual engaging style, popular author David Russell stresses that future teachers need to first appreciate literature in order to later use and teach it effectively in their own classrooms. The text's user-friendly format includes a wealth of real examples from literature, and its concise presentation allows students to spend more time reading actual children's books."--
