"With plenty of information given on over 50 authors, this should prove to be a valuable resource for acquisition and reference librarians as well as teachers working with children's literature. With the current emphasis on multicultural literature, it is especially pertinent. It serves the useful purpose of making all of us more aware of the excellent literature out there about a variety of groups little taught in our schools. Highly recommended for all libraries." - ^B^XReference Book Review^R
