Australian Literature for Young People

Rosemary Ross Johnston

  • The book not only teaches about children's literature but sets it in a broad educational, artistic and social continuum
  • It engages with educational principles and pedagogies
  • It stimulates the reader's creativity overtly and deliberately - it is designed to stimulate the creativity of teachers themselves, in the work and activities they design for their classes, for this place, and in this moment.
  • Its interdisciplinary focus means that the book has applications across the curriculum
  • It meets the need for such a book in parts of Asia where English is the language of instruction
  • It engages with classical, Indigenous, Western and Asian traditions
  • At a time when there are increasingly high demands on teachers, it is a book designed to promote creativity both in readers and in those with whom they interact as teachers and parents.
