Core Collection for Small Libraries includes both classic and contemporary titles, a basic collection suitable for a small library. Cutting across ethnic lines, the bibliography provides selections suitable for an audience concerned with solid moral and family values. It could be utilized by new schools wishing to expand or evaluate their present collection, by teachers striving to create a balanced approach to whole-language classrooms, by home school parents, by counselors in bibliotherapy, or simply as a guide to good reading.

Recognizing that children develop at varying speed in various directions, this bibliography indicates very broad educational levels, leaving room within each category to meet individual interest and reading skills. Features included in each entry are title, author, publisher, awards won by the book, a brief annotation of the book, suggestions for applications of the book in a classroom setting, and a list of positive character values presented in the volume. Chapters cover picture books, traditional stories, fantasy, historical fiction, contemporary fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and multicultural titles. An explanation of major awards given to children's works is included in an appendix. Includes subject, author and title indexes.

Review:

I liked this book, a handy, library reference with a beautiful presentation-type cover making it also an ideal present for any parent of young children. The format of the book is excellent and very user-friendly...this book is excellent for teachers, schools and teacher-training institutions, as well as for parents... (Australian Library Journal)

...I appreciated the opportunity to preview the book. I found it to be an excellent resource for new and young schools that desire to lay a good foundation for their libraries... (John Schimmer Ed.D, regional director, Association of Christian Schools International)

...useful for both educators and parents who are looking for suggestions of both classic and contemporary books for children and adolescents...the straightforward layout makes this a very accessible book. (National Literacy Trust)

...a balanced and useful selection of books...libraries should look at this bibliography as a starting point for collection development...recommended for public, school, and university libraries that would like a useful children's literature bibliography. (Lisca)

DeLong and Scwedt have authored a work that is at once a handy library reference and an ideal present for parents of young children. The format of the book is excellent and very user-friendly: medium-sized type and standard entries of several lines with three entries per page result in a consistent and easily followed layout...This book is excellent for teachers, schools and universities supporting courses in education and children's literature; it is also a useful selection guide for parents who wish to choose literature that is appropriate in level and message for their children. (Library Collections, Acquisitions and Technical Services)

...sumptuously indexed. The intellectual effort in this book is significant. (The School Librarian)

Especially recommended for its Applications and Values as listed in the subject index. (Donna W. Bowling Christian Library Journal)
