Working with parents is a rewarding occupation; locating resource materials, however, is a constant problem. The authors include a broad range of titles, reflecting the complexity of issues facing parents today. Entries cover prenatal care, child development, recreation, health and safety, education, child rearing and parenting techniques, mental and physical disabilities, activities to do with children, and many other topics. Books aimed at special groups, such as single parents, teen parents, and working parents are also included. Comprehensive rather than selective, this list also includes some titles published before 1965, especially if they represent an important contribution. Annotations describe each entry, unusual features, and intended audience. For public libraries, parents, and the professionals who work with them.
