Growing and Knowing is designed to meet the needs of professionals working with children and their books. Intented for use as a reference book for library assistants and librarians in children's libraries, school libraries, resource centres, and general reference libraries, it also will provide sound information for trainee librarians, teachers and parents. The primary function of this book is to serve as a guide to the selection of books for children, recognising the vast range of books published and the individual rates of reading and social development of different children. The first section focuses on 'The Child: Growing and Knowing through Books', applying reading development theories to the selection of specific books and covering the characteristics of the various genres of children's literature, including the classics and award winners. There is also coverage of books for special situations and dilemmas and for children who are reluctant to read, along with a section on electronic formats. The second section focuses on 'The Professional: Knowing and Growing', providing ideas for book promotion within the children's library or school library and classroom. This section includes a contribution from Tricia Kings and covers the selection of books for children from different ethnic groups throughout the world. There are also ideas for books for fathers and sons to enjoy reading together.
