What Shall Our Children Read? A Selected Bibliography of Native American Literature for Young People.
Blank, Ruth, Comp.
Designed to serve as a starter guide to teachers and Native American parents working with American Indian education programs, this annotated bibliography includes titles selected to reflect current availability and criteria for non-biased subject presentation and literary value. The books are grouped broadly according to reading ability levels designated as: "easy" (K-2); "medium" (3-5); and "high" (6-12). American Indian authors or sponsorship are noted by an asterisk (*). As designated, the books included in this publication number 27 in the "easy'' category; 47 in the "medium" category; and 58 in the "high" category. A selection of eight Indian-authored poetry citations is also presented. The publication dates range from 1953 to 1977, though the majority fall in the 60's and 70's. (JC)
