Children's and Adolescent Literature from the Pacific Rim.
Spiegel, Lisa A.; Richardson, Maurine
Noting that literature written for children and adolescents can help students gain an understanding of the Pacific Rim area and its people, this paper presents advice on selecting appropriate literature, a children's literature bibliography, and an adolescent literature bibliography. The paper notes that to select appropriate literature, a teacher should consider the general accuracy of the story line, lack of stereotypes, use of appropriate language rather than derogatory slang, accurate perspective of the author, and story line and illustrations current in fact and interpretation with children's and adolescent literature. The approximately 700-item bibliography of children's literature that comprises appendix A of the paper has two perspectives: a compilation of authors from the Pacific Rim, and lists of coauthors from the Pacific Rim and other countries who have written books about the region. The approximately 225-item adolescent literature bibliography presented in appendix B lists books with themes or characters from the Pacific Rim area. (RS)
