Moyle, Donald, Ed.
The 59 books annotated in this issue are arranged under five headings: infant schools; junior schools; secondary schools; adult literacy work; and apparatus, games, and kits. The books for school-age children are further subdivided into reading and language development, fiction, and nonfiction. Each entry contains a subjective readability rating from a panel of teachers, a readability rating based on the Flesch Reading Ease formula, an estimate of the interest age range, and, if the book is a nonfiction text, the Dewey and Bliss classification numbers. Books that apply to more than one age classification are cross-referenced, and two indexes (subject and author/title) are included. (RL)
