Instructor comments:

Students are expected to read a mininum of two children's books per week which fit certain themes. The books need to be checked out of a public library as not all books are in digital format. Plan to get a library card (if you don't have one) and plan to check out books from libraries. The best way to understand, analyze and evaluate children's books is to actually read the books.

The textbook is required and the first assignment relies on having a textbook. The textbook is used  throughout the term so it is very important to get it as soon as possible.

During Spring and Summer terms while the public libraries are closed, we will need to rely upon digital resources. Getting a library card is essential to access ebooks and other online resources provided through the library system (such as Overdrive and Tubmblebooks).
