Children's Literature and Intergenerational Relationships
Date: 24th April, 2022
Publisher: PALGRAVE MACMILLAN
Children's Literature and Intergenerational Relationships: Encounters of the Playful Kind explores ways in which children's literature becomes the object and catalyst of play that brings younger and older generations closer to one another. Providing examples from diverse cultural and historical contexts, this collection argues that children's texts promote intergenerational play through the use of literary devices and graphic formats and that they may prompt joint play practices in the real world. The book offers a distinctive contribution to children's literature scholarship by shifting critical attention away from the difference and conflict between children and adults to the exploration of inter-age interdependencies as equally crucial aspects of human life, presenting a new perspective for all who research and work with children's culture in times of global aging.
