Books for Today's Young Readers: An Annotated Bibliography of Recommended Fiction for Ages 10-14.
Bracken, Jeanne; And Others
The result of a review of fiction for young people ages 9 through 14, this bibliography contains titles of works of fiction that achieve the goal of combining a good readable story with sensitivity to a wide range of negative stereotyping. The bibliography begins with an introduction that discusses in detail the reviewing process that culminated in the recommended titles. Each of the subsequent sections contains an explanation of the theme for which the books were chosen, followed by the annotated titles. The sections cover: (1) gender and self-awareness; (2) peer friendships; (3) ethnicity, acculturation, and racism; (4) children with special needs; (5) families in transition; (6) foster care and adoption; and (7) intergenerational relationships. Title, subject, and author indexes conclude the bibliography, along with a list of the reviewers' favorite titles. (HTH)
