Except for a few historical landmarks, the items discussed are nontextbooks. Included are books written expressly for children, folklore books, and adult books taken over by children. Annotations are supplied to indicate the relative importance and value as well as the usefulness and interest of the various items. Analytical entries are made for important parts of general works, with cross references to the larger works concerned with more than one area of interest. The 1073 items are grouped under the following main headings: (1) History and Criticism, (2) Authorship, (3) Illustration, (4) Bibliography, (5) Books and Children (reading guidance, storytelling, folklore, myths, legends, nursery rhymes, poetry, and magazines), (6) the Library and Children's Books, (7) International Studies, and (8) National Studies.

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)
