"The selection of books is excellent and shows not only knowledge of children's literature but also an understanding of children's reading tastes. A distinguished volume that will be useful in both elementary school libraries and children's rooms as an effective tool for giving reading guidance as well as in evaluating and building library collections." -- ARBA (American Reference Books Annual) 1999 and Library & Information Science Annual 1999
