Helping Children through Books: An Annotated Bibliography. 4th Revised Edition.
Dole, Patricia Pearl, Comp.
Since the emphases in book publishing change constantly, this fourth revised edition has some new sections, such as ADHD, while the Substance Abuse and Gender Roles Sections have declined sharply. The bibliography's essential goal is the same as always, however: to illuminate problems children may be facing. The purpose is twofold: to help the children directly affected and to develop empathy and understanding in others. In all cases the librarian should be familiar with the contents of the titles and with the children to whom they are recommended, and often adult supervision and interpretation are necessary. Over one third of the materials listed in this bibliography appeared in the 1990 edition. Following an introduction, the bibliography is divided into two broad sections:"Everyday Problems" and "Special Problems.""Everyday Problems" contains these main themes: "Sibling Rivalry"; "New Baby"; "Understanding Old Age"; "Self-Acceptance"; "Self-Control and Conflict Resolution"; "Fears"; "Moving"; and "Day Care and Babysitters.""Special Problems" contains these main themes: "Changing Families"; "Handicaps"; "Safety and Child Abuse"; "Illness"; "Doctors, Dentists and Hospitals"; and "Death." Contains a suggested grade level for each book, an author index, and a title index. (BT)
