Overview

This selective bibliography makes it easier than ever to find quality children's books that focus directly on religious themes or characters. Dole offers more than 675 critical evaluations of recently published (since 1990) materials appropriate for preschool through middle school students. Material is arranged alphabetically by author within subject-based chapters (e.g., God, Prayer, Christian Church History and Biography). Works covered range from age-appropriate reference materials to folktales, prose, poetry, plays, and picture books. Reflecting publishing trends, the largest sections of the book are those on Christianity and Judaism, but Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, and African, Chinese, and Native American beliefs are also addressed. Useful as a ready reference and collection development guide, this book is an ideal reference and collection development tool for school, public, and church libraries.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A compilation of books with overt spiritual themes for preschoolers through young adults. These titles represent a variety of genres, including retellings of Bible stories, prayer books, creation stories, songbooks, holiday tales, mysteries, and biographies from both religious and trade publishers. All have been published since 1990, but Dole concludes each chapter with an "Older and Noteworthy" section. Opening chapters present titles dealing with general concepts about religion, God, prayer, and the Bible; middle chapters include books on the Judeo-Christian tradition; and concluding sections suggest books on Native American religions, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and a variety of other faiths. Each of the nearly 700 critically annotated entries includes bibliographic information, though grade levels are not indicated. A highly useful resource for academic, religious, and public libraries.-Sue Burgess, Framingham State College, MA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Booknews
An annotated critical bibliography of some 700 books with distinct religious themes. While the majority of the entries deal with Judaism and Christianity, other major religions and folk beliefs are covered. The books considered are appropriate for children from preschoolers to middle schoolers. Only books published after 1990 are covered in detail. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
