Using Outstanding Translated Children's Books in the School Setting To Promote an Understanding of Other Countries and Cultures.
White, Maureen; Bluemel, Nancy
The importance of translated children's books to the literary and cultural development of children is well documented, and the study of other countries is an important part of the school curriculum across grade levels. Therefore, purposes of the research were (1) to share results of research on outstanding translated children's books published from 1990-2000; (2) to provide a bibliography of these books that can be used by librarians, teachers, and students in a study of other countries; and (3) to present an application of a collaborative study on the use of translated books by a middle school librarian with teachers in a real-life setting. An appendix contains a 72-item recommended list of translated children's books. (Contains 11 references and 4 tables.) (Author/RS)
