This volume is a compendium of various monthly meetings and seminars
organised by the National Center for Children's Literature. These meetings
have been lively forums of interaction between people involved with creating
the best of books for children. Children too have many times participated in these discussions.
This has helped the people working in the field assesing the juvenile reader's needs.
The range of topics included in this unique compendium vary from topics like
from oral tradition to written to the special needs - special books.
