Overview

Librarians who need to know about the latest quality books for children will want to have the 7th edition of Best Books at their fingertips. This indispensable selection guide covering nearly 9,000 new titles provides expert recommendations on the most recently published books for young readers Preschool through Grade 6. John Gillespie, renowned authority in the children's literature field, has carefully culled the professional review sources that librarians trust to identify the most highly recommended new children's books. This 7th edition provides over 20,000 annotated and numbered entries, including books published and reviewed in 2001. Every title found on this evaluative list has been recommended by at least two major review sources. Brief annotations, including ISBNs, book length and price, grade level appropriateness, and the review sources help librarians and teachers find the right books for children's recreational and curriculum related reading needs. Information on award-winning books and books in series is also given in this comprehensive resource.

In addition to being an easy to use collection evaluation and title selection tool, Best Books can also be used as a reading guide, and as a resource for specialized bibliographies and reading lists. The organization of the work by subject areas facilitates these multiple uses. Fiction titles are organized both by age divisions and by broad genre and subject categories. Nonfiction works are arranged by standard curriculum areas, such as biographies, the arts, sciences, and history. Completing the book are three indexes organized by author/illustrator, book title, and subject/grade level.
