What have I been reading this week? First Opinions―Second Reactions

First Opinions, Second Reactions is an interesting online journal devoted to children's and young adult literature.

It’s co-edited by Drs. Jill P. May and Janet Alsup at Purdue University. I found a number of the first opinion pieces (pieces that usually offer a reading of a book) and the second response contributions (these usually contain teaching ideas) interesting.

I’m glad a colleague introduced this journal to me.


If you’re new to First Opinions, Second Reactions, you might start with Michelle H. Martin’s “Y’all Keep Up” or Christian P. Knoeller’s "Breaking Down Stereotypes of Contemporary American Indians."
