[Analysis of Titles Translated from Foreign Languages Recommended for Acquisition in Use of Elementary School Libraries.]
Gaver, Mary Virginia
This report, given at a special meeting on children's literature held in Tehran, presents an examination of titles from foreign languages which have been recommended for acquisition and use in elementary school libraries serving kindergarten through grade six in the United States and which are commercially available for purchase. The report is based on two lists of titles of imaginative literature--fiction for grades four through six and easy reading for preschool through third grade--recommended in "The Elementary School Library Collection: A Guide to Books and Other Media" and shows that although a wide variety of quality publishers in the United States have issued foreign children's stories, two-thirds have only one or two recommended titles in print, mostly from European languages.
