Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
This comprehensive resource offers planning and programming tips and information on the materials needed to begin, improve, or expand upon services to Latino children. The first section provides an overview of the culture and the literature, spotlights some authors and classic tales, and provides the ingredients for successful programs: song lyrics, fingerplays, rhymes, riddles, scripts, recordings, films, and specific titles, in Spanish and English. Most of the suggestions are for a preschool and elementary age audience, but older children and intergenerational programs are briefly considered. The second section is a virtual guide to collection development in this area. A discussion on the evaluation and selection of material is followed by lists of online resources, distributors, publishers, and an 86-page annotated bibliography of professional resources and children's books. While the programming suggestions will best serve librarians with some fluency in Spanish, those "willing to learn" a few words in the language (primer provided) will also appreciate this useful, nuts-and-bolts guide.-Daryl Grabarek, School Library Journal Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
Offers programmers background to understand Latino culture and literature, and describes useful books, folktales, and recordings. Wadham, from the Dallas (Texas) Public Library, provides the full Spanish and English texts for nearly 100 fingerplays and nursery rhymes, two bilingual puppet shows, and over 20 ready-to-go programs for public and school libraries. He also includes other information such as the Dewey Decimal Classification in Spanish, Latino holiday programs, and bilingual publicity materials. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
