"Little Red Readings makes a major contribution to historical materialist criticism and to children's literature criticism. The thirteen essays by outstanding scholars offer a wonderful variety of historical materialist approaches to a range of topics within children's and young adult literature, and the introduction offers a useful overview of historical materialism as a methodology. And, the essays are a great read!"
--Julia Mickenberg, author of Learning from the Left: Children's Literature, the Cold War, and Radical Politics in the United States
"Little Red Readings is a big deal and great stuff! Thanks to Angela Hubler and the contributors to this significant book on historical materialism and children's literature, we can grasp more clearly why it is necessary to study the class conflicts and socio-economic relations that forge the very nature of children's literature. Indeed, Hubler's book is very timely, because we tend to evade talking about the causes of the immiseration of children while praising noteworthy books that deal with the denigration and abuse of children. There is no evasion in Little Red Readings, and let us hope there will be more readings like this in the future."
--Jack Zipes, author of The Irresistible Fairy Tale
"Angela Hubler's Little Red Readings is an historical materialist primer for children's lit scholars and a call to action. It's Marxist. It's feminist. It's radical. Read it!"
--Philip Nel, author of Crockett Johnson and Ruth Krauss: How an Unlikely Couple Found Love, Dodged the FBI, and Transformed Children's Literature
