Children's Literature for the Indochinese Refugees; an International Challenge.
Hoyle, Karen Nelson
In the five years since 260,000 Indochinese refugees of diverse language backgrounds departed their homelands for resettlement in 31 countries around the world, libraries have responded to the challenge of providing children's literature by acquiring reading materials in the language of origin, translations, and books about the homeland. This paper describes the efforts of individual libraries in such countries as Australia, Canada, Denmark, the United States, Germany, France, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom, and enlarges upon national programs of resource sharing already in being to propose programs of international exchange. A 25-item bibliography is provided. (RAA)
