The authors, an eminent husband-and-wife team in the fields of picture-book criticism and art education, have selected and fully annotated a wide range of high-quality titles about many cultures. Their style is chatty and jargon-free; they always relate the art to the story and to the culture it reflects. The organization is by world area, and in each case, the authors discuss books of folktales that reflect the past, books about contemporary life, and finally, books about the experiences of immigrants in the U.S. Brief introductions touch on general issues of authenticity, ethnic identity, and self-esteem, but the great contribution of the book is in the detailed, highly knowledgeable discussion of individual titles. It will be used that way in children's literature courses and as a resource for libraries and classrooms. Hazel Rochman
