This book is primarily a handbook for teachers in the grades and for students preparing to teach in the grades. Although it does not ignore problems of grading and presentation, the chief purpose is to acquaint teachers and prospective teachers with standard literature of the various kinds suitable for use in the classroom and to give them information regarding books and authors to aid them in directing the selection of books by and for children.

I think this is a great resource. First of all, it has an extensive list of nursery rhymes. That alone is worth the download.

Another sections includes lists by authors with brief synopses. It is definitely a nice reference book to have.


And much, much more...
