Abstract:

Nonfiction books for children - from biographies and historical accounts of communities and events to works on science and social justice - have traditionally been most highly valued by educators and parents for their factual accuracy. This approach, however, misses an opportunity for young readers to participate in the generation and testing of information. In 'A Literature of Questions', Joe Sutliff Sanders offers an innovative theoretical approach to children's nonfiction that goes beyond an assessment of a work's veracity to develop a book's equivocation as a basis for interpretation.
