This book should prove an invaluable help to librarians, teachers, and parents looking for quality information books for children. 470 titles have been selected by an experienced team of reviewers for young people between the ages of 3 and 16. Written by teachers and librarians, each review includes full bibliographical details, a succinct assessment of the book and an indication of reader age range. The subjects covered take into account the requirements of the National Curriculum. All areas of knowledge are covered, but no attempt was made to find recommended titles in all subjects - the quality of the book was in the end the factor for choice. In some subject areas the only good book that could be recommendeded was out of print. Although available from libraries, it is hoped that publishers will make note of these titles. The main sequence of the book follows the outlines of the Dewey Decimal System, but those wishing to approach the book with a specific topic, author or title in mind, will be supplied with a detailed subject and author/title more
