Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Youth-serving librarians seek guidance in collection development, and this slim volume provides hundreds of award-winning books that may easily be considered library staples. The authors relied on awards, personal experience, and peer reviews for their selection. The list is divided into eight chapters that offer separate genres, such as classic books, contemporary fiction, and picture books. Each chapter begins with an evaluative introduction. Entries are arranged alphabetically by author. Each entry includes full citation, grade levels, summary, awards, related subjects, and character themes. There are indexes for title/author/illustrator/translator, book awards, character themes, and related subjects. Grade levels are not separated out, which would have been a useful feature. Though not inclusive, this is a useful list for youth collections. --Lesley Farmer

Review

This slim volume provides hundreds of award-winning books that may easily be considered library staples....This is a useful list for youth collections. (Booklist, February 2009)

Readers should be warned: the book annotations found in Core Collections for Children and Young Adults will make you want to read each and every title that the authors included. The authors provide some excellent descriptive information about each title. Overall, the book is very well organized and easy to read. It provides a solid list of current award-winning titles that are interesting, entertaining, and frequently inspirational. (Mark Shelton, Harvard University College & Research Libraries (C&RL))

The scope of books reviewed is impressive....The organization of the book is straightforward....Core Collections for Children and Young Adults will be a valuable resource for...anyone interested in children's and young adult literature. (American Reference Books Annual, August 2008)
