Recommended Readings in Spanish Literature, Kindergarten through Grade Eight.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
A list of almost 300 titles of Spanish language reading materials represents the recommendations of the California Media and Library Educators Association for use with Spanish-speaking, limited-English-proficient students in kindergarten through eighth grade. It is intended as a guide for teachers of Spanish and teachers of English language arts who work with this population. Selections include those originally written in Spanish and tales from the oral Spanish tradition, and comprise a variety of genres, including biography, drama, folklore and mythology, historical fiction, modern fantasy, nonfiction, picture book, poetry, realistic fiction, and science fiction. The materials were selected to appeal to readers with a variety of learning abilities and interests. Citations are divided into three sections, including: core and extended materials, recreational and motivational materials, and dual-text materials. Each entry is annotated and includes an entry type (in the case of core and extended materials), recommended grade span, an indication whether the entry is a translation from another language, and genre. Author and title indexes are also provided. (MSE)
