The Status of Children's Fiction Literature Written in Spanish by U.S. Authors.
Bilingual Research Journal, v21 n2-3 p203-12 Spr-Sum 1997
Between 1991 and 1995, 262 books for elementary grades were published in Spanish through U.S. publishers, but only 78 of these were originally written in Spanish by U.S. Hispanic authors. Not all genres were represented, few books were for the higher elementary grades, and most authors were female. Implications for reading achievement among Hispanic children are discussed. (TD)
