Children's Interracial Fiction: An Unselective Bibliography. Curricular Viewpoint Series.
Glancy, Barbara Jean
This bibliography of children's books with black characters is annotated so that the reader may decide which books would be of interest to him or to her. The bibliography attempts to record as complete a listing as possible due to the reported paucity of literature in this area. In this listing of 328 books many portray biracial friendships. Each entry is evaluated for reading grade level, interest age level, and personal recommendation level. The age interest levels are labeled "1" through "5" and are grouped for ages four through eight, eight through ten, ten through twelve, twelve through sixteen, and sixteen plus. The Fogg formula, which takes into account sentence length, words over three syllables excluding compound words, proper nouns and inflected endings, number of words per page, and the percentage of difficult words per page, has been used to compute reading levels. ["Black Barbecue," an article reprinted from "Teachers College Record" and "Changing Education" (Spring 1969) in the original document, has been omitted in the document available from EDRS.] (KG)
