Review: 

This book is not too "scholarly" to enjoy, and I have truly enjoyed it. Each of the chapters discusses a different element of children's literature in the context of actual books. There is a complete synopsis of the book at this address:

Be forewarned: you will be running to your bookshelves to start reading some of these books to your children and to re-read them yourself.
