The Children's Core Collection (formerly Children's Catalog) covers fiction and nonfiction works, story collections, picture books, graphic novels, and magazines recommended for readers in preschool through sixth grade, along with review sources and other professional aids for children's librarians and school media specialists. Entries provide complete bibliographic data, price, subject headings, a descriptive annotation, and evaluative quotations from a review when available. The catalog also includes an annotated list of recommended web resources for children and professionals working with children.
Selected and recommended by specialists in library service to children, listed books encompass a wide variety of topics, including a new abundance of books on technology, social sciences, and sciences.
