Excellent resource of children's literature. There is also a link to resources from the website to use as well. Great list of books for librarians and teachers to use for the classroom, book clubs, and other educational projects. Very in-depth coverage of books with a synopsis and cover photos. Had to use it as a resource for class and it was invaluable.
Anyone looking for a definitive guide to selecting, understanding, and/or knowing children's literature should check out this text. It is definitely pricey, but it returns at least double its value in all that it contains. The name of Charlotte Huck continues to grace the cover of a great teacher/librarian resource.

Done with Materials for Children!! This is an excellent resource for anyone who is interested in children's literature, but especially for educators and librarians.

This will remain on my own professional shelf for a long time to come.

I found this to be very dense, dull reading. However, it's full of helpful lists detailing books for various genres, reading levels, and interests. I would suggest looking over the lists to jump start classes or modules, but I wouldn't suggest buying the book.

I read this book for a children's lit class. It was very informative and has many lists and suggestions for books in many different genres.

This was the best text I had in Library School, but there were disturbing typos, most notably for me "Maude Hart Lovelace". Unless it was talking about Maude's sophmore year..........

I read the 1968 edition. More modern editions would be much more useful.
