Product Description

In Before Austen Comes Aesop: The Children's Great Books and How to Experience Them by Cheri Blomquist, readers will be presented with an in-depth examination of Children's Great Books. This book encourages children to spend more time reading children's literature before attempting adult works, as the author believes it is beneficial to children.

The Children's Great Books list includes classic works that, while not written strictly for children, were orally passed on to them for generations and are foundational for understanding Western culture. These works include Greek and Roman fables, myths, and epics; European legends, sagas, folk stories, and fairy tales; and the Bible. The list also includes the acclaimed works written specifically for children, beginning in the age of the first printing presses and continuing into the late twentieth century.

Additionally, acknowledging the changes in children's literature that have occurred since the mid-1960s, the author provides helpful information for discerning which contemporary influential books are appropriate, or perhaps inappropriate, for one's children. There is also several appendices that are useful for the study of literature at both the elementary and the secondary levels. Paperback, 272 pages.
