Children's Literature: A Guide to Reference Sources.
Library of Congress, Washington, DC.
A guide to material dealing with children's literature, this annotated bibliography describes books, articles, and pamphlets selected on the basis of their estimated usefulness to adults concerned with the creation, reading, or study of books for boys and girls up to 14 years of age. Except for a few historical landmarks, the items discussed are nontextbooks. Included are books written expressly for children, folklore books, and adult books taken over by children. Annotations are supplied to indicate the relative importance and value as well as the usefulness and interest of the various items. Analytical entries are made for important parts of general works, with cross references to the larger works concerned with more than one area of interest. The 1073 items are grouped under the following main headings: (1) History and Criticism, (2) Authorship, (3) Illustration, (4) Bibliography, (5) Books and Children (reading guidance, storytelling, folklore, myths, legends, nursery rhymes, poetry, and magazines), (6) the Library and Children's Books, (7) International Studies, and (8) National Studies. An index of authors, titles, and subjects is provided. (LH)
