A comprehensive, annotated guide to building a multi-ethnic children's collection. Sections are devoted to Native Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, and African Americans, and the broad range of books includes biographies, folklore, picture books, fiction for middle readers, reference and scholarly works, and nonfiction. Each of the approximately 1,300 entries contains full bibliographic data, a detailed annotation, and suggested ages or grades. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
This collection of annotated bibliographies includes separate lists of children's books about Native Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, and African Americans. Within each ethnic list the titles are subdivided into biography, folklore, picture books, fiction for middle readers, reference books, and nonfiction. The annotations are succinct and informative, and the paperback design is bright and accessible. However, despite the title, there's no guide for using the books together across cultures.
