This first book in a three volume series celebrates and examines the work of four African American authors of young adult literature. They are Virginia Hamilton, Julius Lester, Walter Dean Myers, and Mildred D. Taylor; they serve as the foundation of young adult literature and provide robust stories that center and illuminate African American youth. In addition, this volume also examines the role of the Coretta Scott King Award in promoting access and visibility to authors and illustrators who shine a spotlight on African American youth and society. The chapter authors--librarians and established and emerging scholars in the field of young adult literature--survey the work of Hamilton, Lester, Myers, or Taylor; their accolades; and how audiences initially responded to their work. Each chapter highlights a single work and discusses how it might be taught, providing pre, during, and post reading activities or, in some cases, individual, small group, or whole class activities. This volume is a resource for classroom teachers, teacher educators, reading specialists, librarians, and other educators who study, research, and read young adult literature. This first volume supplements studies in the foundations of African American authors of young adult literature and explorations of critical works by these authors.
addition to selecting the award-winning titles, the jury is also responsible for
preparing book discussion guides. A number of these guides are available at the
Coretta Scott King Book Awards website (American Library Association, 2019a).

This brief children’s literature text for pre-service teachers emphasizes the love of literature in the belief that literature is not just something children read or study; it is something that becomes part of them and stays with them for a lifetime. It contains up-to-the-minute treatments of all genres of children’s literature. To help readers discover the joy of children’s literature and how to help others share that joy is a major goal of the book. The emphasis is on the affective dimensions of literature, geared toward children’s aesthetic responses to the stories and poems that they read. Author profiles, a multicultural focus, topical book lists, and a chapter on technology are elements that help students. Each chapter has an essay written by a scholar, a classroom teacher, or other expert (e.g., a middle school student or book editor) who has special knowledge, a particular perspective, or point of view on the chapter topic. Three four-color inserts illustrate the children’s books discussed in the text.
