PICTURE BOOKS FOR CHILDREN
Volume 18 Number 6
This, the third, revised, and enlarged edition of Picture Books for Children, has been written by a professor of children's and adolescent literature at Michigan State University. The introduction discusses the values and uses of picturebooks, current trends in writing and illustration, and criteria for evaluation.An annotated bibliography of approximately 150 titles comprises the main body of the work. They include fiction, non-fiction and poetry, and are divided into four categories, such as "Me and My family" and "The World I Live in." An index of authors (compilers, editors, etc.), illustrators, and titles follows. Most of the titles are from the last decade, with a cut-off imprint date of March 1989. The vast majority of the titles are American, with the very occasional nod in the direction of other English language publishing (British, Canadian, and Australian) and translations. This is not a priority purchase for Canadian librarians.
