The bibliography supplies the reader with a handy reference of children's books, ranging from pre-kindergarten through middle level. Although some may see this book as a children's literature textbook for preservice teachers and undergraduate students in elementary education, it really has the potential to be a more valuable resource for practicing teachers. Already having basic background in children's literature and its genres allows the reader to think more deeply and creatively as he or she reads this interesting reference text. Childhood Education Inspired by the philosophy of expeditionary learning associated with the Outward Bound program, the authors of this book show how children's literature can be incorporated into Outward Bound's basic curriculum. -- Mark I.
