Synopsis: Answer the Information Needs of Your Struggling Adult Readers with this Specially Targeted Book Finding Tool! Librarians in every community find challenges in serving adult patrons who struggle to read. Adult book collections are too daunting, and many children s books are simply too childlike. This bibliography identifies and describes more than 250 nonfiction books from the children s department that will support and engage your adults with special needs. Organized into 15 popular subject areas, and based on recommendations from respected public library adult and children s librarians, school librarians, and children s authors, the books included in this annotated bibliography are based on specific criteria, including: coverage of popular, but complex topics, using clear language, and highly readable presentations; accurate, well-researched texts; appealing, informative illustrations to enhance text; and a minimum of childish features. The majority of works recommended are recent, with publishing dates after 1998, and can be recommended with confidence because they do not talk down to adult readers or embarrass those who may be new readers. This new work is both a handy book finding tool and a terrific resource for helping your library fulfill an important community outreach mission.

From Booklist: This work is aimed at educators and librarians working with adults whose English is poor. Advice on ways to use children’s nonfiction for adults; reference interview strategies; book selection, placement, and utilization; collection development; and readers’ advisory enables this work to not only suggest sources but also offer new ways of serving this growing and diverse population. The first part of the book provides essential background in three chapters that cover providing reference services to adults utilizing the children’s collection; conducting the reference interview; and housing and promoting the collection. The second part of the book provide 15 annotated bibliographies of recommended titles. Each entry includes number of pages; whether the item is part of a series; whether a glossary, an index, and/or a bibliography are included; and a reading level. The volume ends with a bibliography of professional resources and four indexes: author, title, series and subject. --Sara Marcus
