In this course, students learn about the history and development of children’s literature, from eighteenth and nineteenth-century fairy tales to twenty-first century young adult fiction. Students read a selection of the fairy tales that provide the roots for what we consider children’s literature as well as novels written for children and young adults, including Lewis Carroll’s illustrated classic Alice in Wonderland. In addition, since illustration plays such a large role in children’s literature, students also study picture books aimed for young children.
