The wide world of children's books : an exhibition for International Book Year by Library of Congress( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An exhibition honoring UNESCO's designation of 1972 as International Book Year. Items accommodated in the display represent 38 countries but only a tiny token of the Library's rapidly growing collection of foreign children's books from its worldwide acquisition program. Books are shown in their original languages, with three exceptions explained by their notes. Contemporary writing and illustration are highlighted, but included are some recent editions of folklore and literary classics notable for continuing importance and their new illustration by contemporary artists. Attractiveness for display has played a significant part in selection, accounting for the prominance of picture books, while intrinsic excellence and relative importance of a book within its national body of literature have also been factors in choice"--
Children's literature ; a guide to reference sources by Virginia Haviland( Book )

6 editions published between 1972 and 1977 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the second five-year supplement to "Children's Literature: a Guide to Reference Sources" (1966), this annotated and illustrated bibliography reflects the emphases that have developed in the fields of literature and library service for children. New sections include selected bibliographies and critical works on nonprint materials, citations on research in children's literature, and works that now are available from French-speaking Canada. The book is organized by the following headings: history and criticism; authorship, with critical appraisals of individual authors; illustration; bibliography, which includes both American and British compilations and special bibliographies for the exceptional child and for group understanding; books and children, with subheadings on all aspects of children's literature; the library and children's books; international studies; and national studies. Current trends are evident in the increased number of histories and critiques of comics, of publications related to minority interests in the United States, of materials about international organizations and annual international conferences, and of items relating to translation and library development. All entries are annotated to indicate the relative value as well as the usefulness and appeal of the items described. (Mai)
