This bibliography lists selected fiction books for the enjoyment of visually or physically disabled sixth through ninth graders. The books extend the literary experience of young teens, while allowing them to glimpse life as it is lived by others and find greater understanding of themselves. The bibliography lists books available on disc, on cassette, and in braille in network library collections provided by the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped of the Library of Congress. The books are categorized into 17 sections: fantasy and folklore; family life; friends and school; fitting in; poetry and music; historical fiction; frontier and pioneer life; romance; humor; short stories; tales of mystery; adventure; science fiction; sports, pets, and amusements; winter readings; spring and summer readings; and autumn readings. Each entry contains a brief description of the story, an indication of reading level, and a publication date. The guide also contains descriptions of other bibliographies which list materials for individuals with visual impairments. An author-title index and an order form complete the volume. (JDD)
