Summary

The first six decades of this century have been called Childhoods Golden Era, as a growing national awareness emerged concerning the social, material, and emotional needs of children and the responsibility of public institutions to address these needs. This recognition had dramatic effects on the literary habits of children in the United States. DLB Volume 22 presents many of the important figures who were creating childrens literature between the turn of the century, when separate childrens sections were first established in public libraries, until the turbulent 1960s, when, as volume editor John Cech describes, a ...time of innocence was drawing to a close.

43 entries include: L. Frank Baum, Walt Disney, Walter Farley, Hardie Gramatky, Marguerite Henry, Winsor McCay, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, H.A. Rey, James Thurber, E.B. White, Laura Ingalls Wilder and Garth Williams.

Lively and informed...a wealth of information .
