Children's Core Collection

What is it? For collection development, readers' advisory, curriculum support, and selection and purchasing, here is working data on fiction and nonfiction works, story collections, picture books and magazines recommended for readers from preschool through sixth grade. Includes listings from review sources, and other professional aids for children's librarians and school media specialists. Entries provide complete bibliographic data, price, subject headings, a descriptive annotation, and evaluative quotations from a review when available. Selected and recommended by specialists in library service to children, listed books encompass a wide variety of topics, including a new abundance of books on minorities, ecology, natural sciences, and natural history. Data on fairy tales and picture books has also been expanded. New to the 18th Edition are listings of recommended Web resources.
