Sea Sources. Bibliographic and Resource Material of Children's Literature of the Sea.
Writers have often used the sea as background or as a theme in writing for children since it is a natural setting for adventure or exploration and has an attractiveness for all of us. Included in this bibliography is a representative listing of books related to the seas and inland waters, individual stories and poems which have a bearing on sea literature, and selected chapters from books which are not marine literature. Each entry includes title, author(s), publisher, number of pages, grade level, and a brief annotation. Some books with relatively little merit have been included (with appropriate notations) so teachers might examine them and discourage their use in the classroom. Entries are listed, alphabetically by title, under the following categories: (1) Information Books; (2) Biographies/Explorers; (3) Fiction/Adventure; (4) Picture Books; (5) Whales and Sea Mammals; (6) Folk/Fairy Tales; (7) Poetry and Song; (8) Activity/Experiments; and (9) Short Stories/Read-aloud Chapters. An author index is provided. (Author/JN)
