Children's Books and Recordings. 1978.
New York Public Library, NY.
This briefly annotated bibliography of selected children's books and recordings is a salute to the International Year of the Child. Included in its listings is a section highlighting some translations and representative publications from other countries; these depict a range of mores from Edwardian England to that of the Aborigines of Australia. A list of titles by category is followed by a full bibliographic description and annotation for each title in the main body of the work, which is also arranged by category. Minority cultures are well represented, as are books with non-sexist themes; perennial favorites are also mentioned. The 17 categories presented include picture books for preschoolers, picture books for older children, picture book folk and fairy tales, folk and fairy tales, easy-to-read books, stories, stories for older children, holiday stories and songs, poetry, the performing arts, pastimes, designers and builders, nature and science, many people/many ways, background readings on children and literature, new editions and reprints, and recordings. A title/author index is also provided. (JD)
