The titles in the booklist are organized into 19 categories: Adventure; The Animal World; Biography; Dealing with Death; Family Life; Fantasy; Folklore and Legends; Friendship; Growing Up; Historical Fiction; History; How-to Books; Issues of Our Time; Mystery; Poetry; Science; Society; Sports; and Supernatural. An appendix of award-winning books and a directory of publishers are attached. (RS)
