Research in Children's Literature; An Annotated Bibliography.
Monson, Dianne L., Comp.; Peltola, Bette J., Comp.
This bibliography is made up of 332 entries, including unpublished doctoral dissertations and master's theses and published accounts of studies pertaining to literature for children and adolescents. The bibliography does not include studies in which children's books were used as a tool rather than as the focal point of the study, nor does it include studies of subjects in grade ten or above, literary biographies, or criticism of authors. The first section includes abstracts of dissertations completed during 1960-1974 and several studies reported in ERIC. The second section contains a bibliography of research published in journals during 1965-1974. The third section includes related research studies thought to be of interest but not falling within the main focus of the collection. Finally, all of the entries are indexed in terms of the general subject of the research, characteristics of the sample, instruments used for evaluation, and type of study. (Author/AA)
