Compiled to help teachers and teacher-librarians select children's books for kindergarten through eighth grade, this bibliography consists of fiction books of good literary quality published since 1976, of which half are Canadian. The bibliography's content is organized so as to identify each of the 89 books in five different ways: author, organizational pattern, literary elements, theme, and title. The first and major section is an annotated list of books in alphabetical order by author's surname. This is followed by a brief descriptive annotation under which is listed the book's organizational pattern, main literary element, theme, and intended age range. The second section, which lists the books according to the organizational pattern dominant in each book, has six headings or pattern classifications, arranged in alphabetical order by author/title. The third section, also arrranged alphabetically, identifies six literary elements: setting, character development, plot, mood, figure of speech, and point of view, while the fourth section, using the same format, categorizes the book according to the following thematic elements: anxiety/depression, attitude, change, cooperation, curiosity, death, determination/resourcefulness, disabilities, family relations, friendships, imagination/fantasy formation, maturation, responsibility, rhymes/nonsense stories, survival, and values/valuing. The bibliography concludes with a title index. (HOD)
