New England. Reading for Young People.
McCauley, Elfrieda, Ed.
Focusing on readable books for young people about New England and on available materials around which to develop local history and social study units, this annotated bibliography addresses both the recreational reading interests and the research needs of young people. Titles are categorized according to: (1) literature type (fiction; folktales; poetry, drama, and music; biography and personal accounts; and other informational books); and (2) the New England state providing the setting for each title. Each entry includes bibliographic data, suggested grade range, and a brief quotation from the book to identify style, theme, strong characterization, or mood, followed by an annotation that indicates the book's content, scope, and regional value. A directory of regional publishers and local book sources, and author-title and subject indexes are included. (EL)
