Canadian Children's Literature / Littérature canadienne pour la jeunesse,
a refereed journal founded in 1975, invites papers on the subject of

videos, theatre and performances, newspapers and magazines,
museums and libraries, parks and playworlds. We hope to highlight the
designer's crucial role in conceiving of and shaping our ideas about what
we think expresses a child's imagination, meets a child's needs, and
defines what is special about their province and perspective. Some of the
questions we hope to address are as follows:

CFP: Preschool Culture: Theory and Practice (no deadline; journal issue)

and television programs tend to be rooted in teaching the very young
something or other -- letters, numbers, colours, music, sports, values.

What is not clear is just what sort of research on cognitive and emotional
development supports these pedagogic efforts.

Are some books and television shows better than others at promoting
development and acuity in small children, and, if so, why?

What does research in developmental and behavioural paediatrics and in
social learning tell us about optimizng infant development, about the role
of observational learning, about how to promote moral reasoning and
language development?
