Publisher's Comments

Challenges popular assumptions about the importance of childhood reading, examining the creative and cognitive benefits of reading from the earliest development periods through adolescence; in a guide for parents and educators that explores the virtues of such series as C. S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia, Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials, and J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter novels.
