Description: From School Library Journal
In this revised edition of the 1998 guide, fiction and nonfiction are organized by age and subject for children up through about 12 years, including books for family reading. Interest/listening level is differentiated from reading level. Sidebars and inserts include additional information about books, themes or ideas, authors, and more as well as additional commentary by Mayes or Lewis. Frequently asked questions (with answers) provide additional advice for parents. While the volume is thick, the tone is chatty and the format open. Additional resources to learn more about bookmaking and to help evaluate and choose books are appended. - Maria B. Salvadore, formerly at Washington DC Public Library
