A Study of Work in Children's Literature: An Annotated Bibliography.
Hanlon, Tina L.; And Others
This annotated bibliography lists 148 fiction and nonfiction books for third-grade readers of varied reading levels. Many of the books, however, are suitable for a wide variety of ages, and many picture books are also included. The bibliography contains short chapter books, novels for third-grade readers by popular authors such as Beverly Cleary and Laura Ingalls Wilder, and several older classics. Many forms of work are represented in the books, and many types of workers and different jobs are depicted. A literature review preceding the bibliography discusses many of the books listed, as well as the role of work in education and the importance of career education as it relates to children's literature. Contains 11 references. (KC)
