Helping Children through Books: A Selected Booklist. Third Revised Edition.
An update of a bibliotherapy bibliography compiled by the Church and Synagogue Library Association (CSLA) a decade ago, this list includes books intended for children from a preschool to a sixth-grade reading level. Although the first edition included works concerning religion, this edition does not, since those works are already covered in other CSLA guides. Some titles were carried over from the first edition; however, most are recent publications. Preceding its annotation, each entry includes the author, title, illustrator, publisher, number of pages, cost, and classification information. The books are listed in four major categories: (1) "Everyday Problems," which includes problems with brothers and sisters, new babies, understanding older people, self-acceptance, overcoming fears, sex roles, day care and babysitting, and moving; (2) "Special Problems," which includes adoption, divorce, remarriage and stepfamilies, single parent families, safety and child molestation, sexual abuse, substance abuse, the handicapped, the blind, the deaf, the mentally retarded, and the wheelchair bound; (3) "Illness, Health, and Medical Care," which includes cancer, dentists, doctors, and hospitals; and (4) "Death," which includes the death of children, death of an older person, death of a parent, and death of a pet. Author and title indexes follow the text. (SD)
