This basic textbook on the classifications and uses of children's literature in the elementary school is designed for pre-service teachers and undergraduate students in elementary education. Each chapter provides a fresh approach to familiar literary landscapes by examining each principle in turn, as it relates to classics old and new. Unlike other children's literature texts that are strictly genre-based, Literacy and Learning is founded on Outward Bound's ten design principles of Expeditionary Learning: Primacy of self discovery, Having of wonderful ideas, Responsibility for learning, Intimacy and caring, Success and failure, Collaboration and competition, Diversity and inclusivity, The natural world, Solitude and reflection, Service and compassion

MEDIA REVIEWS
This unique book addresses Outward Bound's 10 design principles of Expeditionary Learning as they relate to children's literature....Practical and useful information regarding various children's book awards is provided in the appendices. The bibliography supplies the reader with a handy reference of children's books, ranging from pre-kindergarten through middle level. Although some may see this book as a children's literature textbook for preservice teachers and undergraduate students in elementary education, it really has the potential to be a more valuable resource for practicing teachers. Already having basic background in children's literature and its genres allows the reader to think more deeply and creatively as he or she reads this interesting reference text. * Childhood Education *
Inspired by the philosophy of expeditionary learning associated with the Outward Bound program, the authors of this book show how children's literature can be incorporated into Outward Bound's basic curriculum. -- Mark I. West * Children's Literature Association Quarterly *
