What's New in Children's Literature for the Children of Louisiana? A Selected Annotated Bibliography with Readability Levels (Selected) and Associated Louisiana Content Standards
Webre, Elizabeth C.
An annotated list of children's books published within the last 15 years and related to Louisiana culture, environment, and economics are linked to the Louisiana Content Standards. Readability levels of selected books are included, providing guidance as to whether a book is appropriate for independent student use. The thirty-three books listed are categorized as either appropriate for grades K-5 or grades 6-8. Within each grade level listing, books are categorized according to related Louisiana social studies content standards. Annotations provide useful information regarding both general content and specific text content. Bulleted comments are included in some annotations to alert the teacher to interesting/useful specific content, inaccuracies/misinformation, or appropriateness of content for the intended grade levels. Books selected were those readily found in public libraries and in popular book stores in Louisiana, as well as newly published books publicized in regional newspapers. The list contains a wide variety of texts useful for whole class use and for student research.
