Summary
  • "In this historical study, Anne Lundin explores how the garden of children's classics took root through the agency of two cultural institutions - the children's library and the academy. How did the fledgling children's librarian profession of the late 19[superscript th] century and the fledgling children's literature professorate of the late 20[superscript th] century construct a privileged landscape of literature for children that continues today? What were the political uses of such cultivated space in cultural validation?"
  • "The volume explores the institutional investment of librarians and scholars in canon formation. While children's library history is a longer trail of professional practice, the history of children's literature scholarship converges along a similar path in contemporary children's literature. Beyond library walls and ivory towers is the reader, the maker of meaning in which texts of books are texts of lives."--Jacket
