A Review of Trade Books That Can Be Integrated into a Social Studies Curriculum, at the Intermediate Level, Using "Exploring Our World: Regions," Published by Follett Publishing Company.
Bolin, Patricia A. Kinkade
Fifty-five children's books that can enhance the study of international or global education are cited in this annotated bibliography. Dates of publication range from 1960 to 1980. Preceding the bibliography is a brief summary of the Follett textbook units which this bibliography is designed to supplement, as well as a review of the basic Follett text, "Exploring Our World: Regions." The annotations are organized by the following topics, which correspond to the schema of the text: forest regions, desert regions, farming regions, ocean regions, manufacturing regions, trading regions, and political regions. Since the core of each unit of study is the family, many of the books deal with family life throughout the world. Information provided for each annotation includes a summary, implementation strategies (i.e., information such as reading level and tips for using the book), and bibliographic information regarding additional reviews. A bibliography of 133 supplementary books recommended in the Follett text is also included. (RM)
