It is not enough to expose future teachers and parents to good literature for children. It is important that they see young children reacting to books being read to them, an opportunity education majors get during preservice training. Non-education majors enrolled in my children's literature class were given, as an alternative to a traditional term paper, a chance to interact with preschoolers through the medium of books. Twenty-one students chose to participate in this project.
