Annotated Bibliography: Literature (Fiction & Non-Fiction) for Children about Central, South American and Caribbean Region.
Doolas, Jena
This bibliography was compiled to help solve the problem of finding a variety of books about Central and South America and the Caribbean Region for Hispanic sixth graders. The bibliography includes both nonfiction books appropriate for use in a social studies research component and fiction books appropriate for a reading program. One video is included as well. The bibliography grew out of the idea of integrating the study of the ancient Americas with reading and writing. After reading some of the books, students would write their own family stories, making connections between their heritage and their present. The main section of the bibliography describes 15 books and 1 video. Entries also identify appropriate grade level. The books were published 1952-93, mostly in the 1990s, and include historical materials, and fictional and nonfictional portraits of family life among Latin Americans--Hispanic, indigenous, or immigrant. A second section includes 22 additional books for students without annotations and 16 more books concerned with teaching strategies. (CDS)
