Introductions to each chapter (by the teachers, librarians, university faculty, school-age and university students, and parents who collaborated in choosing the books) share their processes, the issues they dealt with, and the decisions they made about the books in their section. Books are indexed by author, illustrator, subject, and title. (RS)
