Description: From School Library Journal
The books listed and described here "have been carefully chosen by black parents for black parents, for children from birth through early teens." The 500 titles have complete citations, concise annotations, and a list of any award(s) received. The bright, attractive cover and black-and-white photos of book jackets, along with well-chosen quotes from featured books, make this bibliography both interesting and appealing. The volume is well organized, with commonly used age groupings, e.g., "Books for Babies and Preschoolers." The title, author, illustrator, and topic indexes are cross-referenced to the entry number for each book, not the page number. The entries are largely current titles and tend to overlook folklore and library standards such as Ashley Bryan's The Dancing Granny (Atheneum, 1977; o.p.) and Sharon Bell Mathis's The Hundred Penny Box (Viking, 1975). Nevertheless, this is a worthy addition for libraries that serve children or support a curriculum for the study of children's literature.
