Rethinking Children’s Literature Magazine

Diversity is critical in constructing culture and community identity within children’s literature. We grow up and are wired and re-wired by the stories we read as children and retell as adults. This gatekeeping happens at home, schools, and communities, often preventing new, different, and rewritten stories from being consumed, read, and valued as quality literature.

In the inaugural edition of our free, digital, interactive literary magazine, Rethinking Children's Literature, teacher education students invite you to engage with children’s literature as a way to raise social consciousness. Find student-created blogs and book trailers, hear from well-known author/illustrator Jarrett Krosoczka, find lesson plans, and read original written and illustrated pieces that encourage reading for change.

This magazine is the product of a collaboration between Darolyn "Lyn" Jones, assistant professor; Jennifer Palilonis, George and Frances Ball distinguished professor of multimedia; iMedia; and teacher education students. The magazine will be published biannually in the winter and fall and will solicit submissions from Ball State students, faculty, and the community.
