This chapter surveys the history and current state of children’s print culture, focusing on the United States and Great Britain, and touching on issues including the divide between literary and mass-market publishing, the rise of contemporary realism, and the development of digital book apps. Although print culture as a subject encompasses a broad range of social, cultural, historical, and material considerations surrounding the production and consumption of texts, this survey addresses a more narrow question: How have books and related texts for youth developed to their current status?.
