Over 1,000 titles are included in this thoroughly revised and updated 4th edition of Reference Books for Children (1981). Intended as a buying guide for both public and school libraries, the new volume provides complete bibliographic data, prices, and descriptions for a wide range of materials in order to aid individual librarians in making selections based upon the needs of their particular library. The scope of materials included is deliberately broad, encompassing the needs of both school and public libraries and covering the wide span of interests, curriculum needs, and levels of difficulty through middle school. Materials are arranged by broad fields of knowledge.
