Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This new edition echoes the aims and format of earlier versions. The purposes are to provide subject access to picture books (defined as "a fiction or nonfiction title with illustrations occupying as much or more space than the text and with text vocabulary or concepts suitable for preschool to grade two") and to find the topics of books whose title, author, or illustrator are known. A six-page essay (mostly repeated from the third edition) outlines the development of picture books; a bibliography of professional readings follows. Next is a list of the subject headings used, including cross-references. The "Subject Guide" lists picture books, by title and author, under 800 subject headings such as "Activities"; "Format, Unusual"; "Sport-fishing"; and "Poetry, Rhyme". Full citations (author, title, illustrator, publisher, date, ISBN) are given in the "Bibliographic Guide," plus subjec (s) under which the title is listed in the "Subject Guide." Author and illustrator indexes refer to listings in the "Bibliographic Guide. This source, which started as a categorization of San Diego Public Library's picture-book collection, has expanded to include more than 14,000 titles--2,000 more than the third edition. The compilers examined most of the books cited. Although out-of-print titles are included, some titles from the third edition have inexplicably been dropped Because of the arrangement of the book, in most cases users have to look in two places to ferret out information. However, since many catalogs provide inadequate subject access to picture books, "A to Zoo" can be helpful in identifying books for use in programs, displays, and bibliographies; there is slight potential use for collection development. Parents and teachers may also find subject access to picture books useful. This book is highly recommended for public and elementary school libraries and academic children's-literature collections, but in these tight times, libraries with the third edition may want to hold out until the fifth edition. In that edition, the Board encourages the compilers to tell users more about the selection process.
Booknews
New edition of a handy resource for all involved with children's picture books (except, directly, the children, of course)--librarians, authors, illustrators, parents, teachers, publishers. The first section is titles arranged by subject; the second is the bibliographic listing, by author, with subjects indicated for each entry. An introduction tells of the genesis of the English-language picture book. Indexed by title and illustrator. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
