Books in Spanish for Children and Young Adults: An Annotated Guide (Libros Infantiles y Juveniles en Espanol: Una Guia Anotada).
Intended to aid teachers, librarians, and others in the selection of Spanish-language books for children in grades K-12, the annotated guide includes books by Hispanic authors which highlight the lifestyle, folklore, heroes, history, fiction, poetry, theatre, and classical literature of Hispanic cultures. Most books included in the guide have been published since 1973. Still in print as of January 1978, all the books are readily available and widely read by children in Spanish-speaking countries. Textbooks and translations are not included. The books in the guide have their origins in Aregentina, the Caribbean region, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain, Uruguay, and Venezuela. The listings are organized by country; within country, by genre; and within genre, by author. Each citation includes: publishing data; a tenative grade level assignment; a descriptive and evaluative annotation; and a designation of the book as outstanding, marginal, or not recommended. Appendices list the names and addresses of book leaders in Spanish-speaking countries and of United States book dealers specializing in books from Spanish speaking countries. Author, title, and subject indices are included. (SB)
