Recordings for Children. A Selected List of Records and Cassettes. Fourth Edition.
Thomas, Elaine E., Comp.; And Others
This booklet, compiled by three experts in children's recordings, provides a selected list of records and cassettes which can accommodate a broad range of informational and recreational requirements of children. Some of the subjects covered are children's songs and folk music, orchestral music, popular music, holidays, natural sciences and space are documentaries, and literature, including folk and fairy tales, stories, and poetry. The criteria for selecting the recordings included effectiveness, aesthetics, broad appeal, and execution. Adaptations and dramatizations were selected only when they could transform the true qualities of the book and its characters; song albums were selected for their natural appeal. Documentary and miscellaneous recordings were selected on the basis of a wide interest range. Recordings which appeared patronizing, biased, or ethnically stereotyped were not included. A directory of distributors appears in the booklet. (Author/LLS)
