Children's Literature in Education has been a key source of articles on all aspects of children's literature for more than 40 years. It covers classic and contemporary material, the highbrow and the popular, and ranges across works for infants through to material for young adults. It features analysis of fiction, poetry, drama and non-fictional material (plus studies in other media: film, TV, computer games, online works); visual narratives from picture books and comics to graphic novels; interviews with writers and artists; textual analysis and interpretation from differing theoretical perspectives; historical approaches to the area; reader-response work with children; ideas for teaching children's literature; adaptation, translation and publishing. CLE is a peer-reviewed journal covering children's literature worldwide, suitable for professionals in the field (academics, librarians, teachers) and any other interested adults.
