Reading for Young People: The Midwest.
Hinman, Dorothy; Zimmerman, Ruth
One of five annotated bibliographies that describe books about certain regions of the United States, this compilation focuses on books about the Midwest. The stated purposes of these regional bibliographies are: (1) to introduce young people living in the subject region to books dealing with their cultural heritage, (2) to help young people of other regions of the United States understand the cultural and social influences that shaped the lives of people in the subject region, and (3) to serve as a selection tool for librarians, teachers, and students as they plan units of work or special projects. Titles are listed both by literature type (fiction; folktales; poetry, drama, and music; biography and personal accounts; and other informational books) and by the state (Colorado, Montana, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming) each title uses as the setting. Each entry includes bibliographic data and a brief quotation from the book to identity style, theme, strong characterization, or mood, followed by an annotation that indicates the book's content, scope, and regional value. A suggested general grade range from primary through senior high school is included for each book. (AEA)
