From Instruction to Delight, 4th edition, by Patricia Demers

As a previous instructor in children’s and YA literature, I today received an announcement from Oxford UP that the 4th edition of Patricia Demers From Instruction to Delight, one of the cornerstones of studies in the development of children’s literature as a genre, has just been released. While I am sadly not posting a full review, I strongly advocate that any of you who are interested in children’s literature, as either an academic or personal pursuit, read this important study.

Pat Demers’s other hats, as most of you will know, are numerous. Most notably at CWRC is her Canadian Women Writing and Reading from 1950 project.

Congratulations, Pat, on the new release!
