Young Children in Poverty: An Annotated Bibliography of Books and Reports.
Hallingby, Leigh, Comp.
This annotated bibliography for program operators, policymakers, academics, interested students, and other professionals describes materials related to young children and families in poverty, social welfare policies, and prevention programs. The major criteria for the inclusion of materials were that the subject matter be appropriate and that the publications be in print and available for purchase from a publisher or distributor. (Most of the items listed have been published in the last 5 years, and some older or out-of-print classics may not appear.) Another criterion for inclusion was that the publication be national rather than local in scope. State and local reports on young children in poverty are not listed, nor are periodical articles. Many listed materials are published by nonprofit and governmental organizations and cannot be found in major indexes or libraries. Citations, in 13 sections, concern: (1) poverty; (2) children in poverty; (3) minorities; (4) single mothers; (5) the uninsured; (6) social policies; (7) welfare reform; (8) programs--general; (9) early childhood care and education; (10) family support and childhood education; (11) maternal and child health; (12) public law 99-457, and (13) hunger and food distribution. Price and ordering information is provided for each citation. (RH)
