This chapter focuses on children’s books and other forms of popular print culture for young readers published in the United States between 1860 and 1920. After providing an overview of definitions concerning children’s literature and other ‘popular’ publications for children as well as ‘child reader’, the chapter examines three areas of juvenile fiction, along with representative writers from each: nineteenth-century literary periodicals, Sunday or Sabbath-school libraries, and series books.
