Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

In her latest compilation, Schon evaluates 1231 reference books, fiction, and nonfiction, mainly published in the last five years. Entries are arranged alphabetically by author and include a grade level for each book. The majority of the fiction are translations of titles by popular and well-known American authors and classics and award-winning juvenile titles by authors from diverse cultures, genres, times, and languages. Schon also includes a number of original titles by Spanish writers, some of them contemporary, such as Carlos Ruiz Zafón and Jordi Sierra Fabra, and others from the 19th and early 20th centuries. Underrepresented are works by Mexican, Caribbean, and South American writers as well as materials by Latino writers living in the United States. Schon examines and recommends materials based on the quality of the Spanish language, literary appeal, and the versatility of the translators, paying special attention to the effective use of Peninsular Spanish or the Spanish from the Americas. This annotated bibliography will help selectors in public libraries and media centers to develop existing Spanish-language collections. However, those interested in building a new collection must consider this resource in conjunction with other selection aids that provide a more extensive number of original Spanish titles and that reflect the flourishing of the publishing industry in countries like Colombia and Venezuela, barely represented in this volume.—Freda Mosquera, Broward County Library, FL

Schon examines and recommends materials based on the quality of the Spanish language, literary appeal, and the versatility of the translators, paying special attention to the effective use of Peninsular Spanish or the Spanish from the Americas. This annotated bibliography will help selectors in public libraries and media centers to develop existing Spanish-language collections. (School Library Journal, July 2009)

This is an essential resource for those seeking to acquire children's books in Spanish, even more so for those who are not themselves fluent in the language. Extensive author/title/subject indexes and a list of dealers of books in Spanish are useful supplements to the text. (Multicultural Review, Fall 2009)

Expert Isabel Schon ... has produced an excellent book for the public and school librarian. ... Schon knows how to write book summaries. Without wasting words, she moves competently into the particulars of each story. (American Reference Books Annual)

Recommended. (Collection Management, March 2010)

Detailed annotations, which include complete bibliographic information and a recommended grade level, are sufficiently descriptive to facilitate the selection process. A comprehensive subject index provides further guidance. ... Whether creating a new collection or increasing existing holdings, libraries serving Spanish-speaking patrons will find this volume timely and accessible. (Booklist, June 2009)

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By otterbyte on July 1, 2010
Format: Hardcover
I'm not sure why the previous reviewer was confused. Here is the first sentence of the book's description, above:

"In her latest compilation, Schon evaluates 1231 reference books, fiction, and nonfiction, mainly published in the last five years."

"Evaluates" is what it says here. And, a minor point, it says "her", which also shows that the reviewer didn't read the description. How in heaven's name would there be the text of over one thousand books in one volume?

I must add that I haven't read the volume; my review is here merely to even out what seems to me an unfair judgment of the book. Now, with a neutral rating, I hope that someone will post a review of the contents.

This book IS NOT what it says. These ARE NOT books in Spanish for children. This is just somebody who has researched Spanish books for children and what you are buying ARE NOT the actual books, but his recommendations. There is no description so you don't know what you have bought until you pay $40. I am pursuing a refund.
