Children’s Literature Review through Literature Criticism Online helps parents, teachers, and librarians — those responsible for bringing children and books together — make informed choices when selecting reading materials for the young. In addition, it provides researchers of children’s literature with easy access to a wide variety of critical information from English language sources in the field.

The series currently covers more than 750 authors and also includes numerous entries focusing on individual titles and topics in children’s and young adult literature, including picture books, folklore and graphic novels. More than 97% of critical essays from the print series are reproduced in full in this online version, which combines multiple search and browse options with an engaging format that matches the look and feel of the print originals.

Introductory essays are written and entries compiled by professional literature researchers and other subject matter experts. Each entry includes a set of previously published reviews, essays and other critical responses from sources that include scholarly books and journals, literary magazines, interviews, letters and diaries, carefully selected to create a representative history and cross-section of critical responses.
