Second of the five resource books by ELI, this one brings a set of another 10 insightful blog and opinion pieces, exploring the concept of Children's literature, the criteria of "good" children's literature, it's role in language and literacy classrooms and some words of experience on the ways of facilitating a meaningful engagement with the literature. In addition to this are lists of annoated reading resources covering themes such as; Read aloud, Understanding and engaging with Children's literature, Children's libraries, storytelling etc.

The concept of literacy has encountered a shift in attitudes and (is slowly reflecting in) practices; from the previous notion of "being able to read and write", to being able to comprehend what they read and write, to critique it and understand it's relevance to their lives, to express and communicate effectively. A good children's literature holds the potential to play a pivotal role in learning these skills and in addition,  also provides children with the opportunities to engage with literary components, critical inquiry, the aesthetic and imaginative dimension. Connecting the two, it'd be apt to say that (thus,) ".... the use of children's literature in language and literacy classrooms becomes, no optional but central to the curriculum."

What are Resource Books? About 45 original short-blog pieces, aiming at perspective-building, invited from practitioners and academics from the field, along with and approximately 150 annotations across the five themes; Multilingual Education, Children’s literature, Children’s writing, Decoding of script and Comprehension.
