Smith, Louisa-Jane – Children's Literature in Education, 2019
American culture is greatly influenced by conservative and religious views that construct adolescent sexuality as problematic.

Rudd, David – Children's Literature in Education, 2019

Pullinger, Debbie – Children's Literature in Education, 2019
In Hollindale's "Signs of Childness in Children's Books" (1997), the idea that adulthood is continuous with childhood co-exists with the idea that it is forever separated. Far from being self-contradictory, this reflects the complex reality represented within children's literature. Focusing on the case of children's poetry, in which the…

Nikolajeva, Maria – Children's Literature in Education, 2019
