New Database - Children's Core Collection (H.W. Wilson)

The Children's Core Collection is a specialized database with information about books both fiction and nonfiction, story collections, and picture books that are recommended for readers in preschool through sixth grade.

The abstracts give recommendation levels from Most Highly Recommended, Core Collection to Supplementary Title. Reading levels are identified. Starred reviews are cited and any "Best Lists" for the title are identified.

Professional literature for the children's librarian--both periodicals and books--is also covered. Selected and recommended by collection development specialists, books within Children's Core Collection encompass a wide variety of topics, including social sciences, science, math and reading.
