Child Life and Literature

Excerpt from Child Life and Literature The aim of this book is to call the teacher's attention to the choice of material in literature best suited to the nature and needs of elementary school pupils. To this end a gen eral survey is made of the field of child psychology, and a course in reading and literature is developed in harmony with the dominant mental characteristics and natural ih terests of children. It is gratifying to notice a tendency on the part of educa tional authorities to enlarge the school curriculum in liter ature. School readers alone must fail to interest children in reading. Complete units should be presented instead of extracts. Every phase of child life should be reflected; and all material should possess true literary merit. In the chapters on choice of literature selections, an attempt has been made to be as definite and specific as possible without being dogmatic. I have by no means ex hausted the available supply of suitable material; I lnve endeavored rather to point the way to the Elysian Fields of literature. The principles laid down are in general accord with the course of study in reading and literature for the Horace Mann Elementary school, Teachers College.
