Presented here are some 750 fiction and nonfiction books--from
folklore to poetry--focusing on separation and loss themes for
young people. Highly selective, the guide profiles only classic and
recommended titles from School Library Journal, Bulletin of the
Center for Children's Books, Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, The Horn
Book, The Bookfinder, and other publications. Arranged by topic,
each annotated entry provides a review of plot and theme,
interest/reading level, suggestions for use, and full bibliographic
information. Issues include Homelessness, Economic Loss/Parents Out
of Work, and Race Relations. This is the ideal reference guide for
those who have the opportunity to help children facing tough
personal roadblocks, ranging from going away to camp to the death
of a sibling.
