The Best in Children’s Books

The University of Chicago Guide to Children’s Literature, 1966-72

With so many new children’s books published each year, how can children learn to choose good books, and how can adults help them? This guide is designed to aid adults—parents, teachers, librarians—in selecting from the best children’s literature published in recent years. By encouraging reading and ownership of books, by suggesting better books, and by discussing good books with enthusiasm and understanding, adults may help children to acquire discrimination in reading.

This guide contains 1,400 reviews of the best children’s literature published between 1966 and 1972.
