AGES: 4-7 AUTHOR: Hans Augusto Rey was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. As a child, he spent much of his free time in that city's famous Hagenbeck Zoo drawing animals. After serving in the army during World War I, he married Margret Rey and they moved to Montmartre for four years. The manuscript for the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and Curious George was published in 1941. Curious George has been published in numerous languages. And many, many Curious George books have followed.

So many books, so little time, so many needs, so little budget: If this describes your situation, here's a new book to help you approach book selection confidently and strategically. If you are new to the library environment, in charge of training new librarians or paraprofessionals, or looking for new ideas in collection development, this resource is a must-have. Phyllis Van Orden, a past president of both the Association for Library Services to Children and the Association for Library and Information Science Education, and Sunny Strong share their advice for: establishing general criteria and following guidelines; choosing diverse material; using selection tools effectively; special selection criteria for specific genres, including picture books, fiction, genre fiction, folk literature, rhymes, and poetry; and, special guidelines for selecting particular subjects. You'll learn how to: ask the right questions; probe the intellectual content of the subject; examine the worth (quality, value, merit) of a book; and, verify the bottom line - is it worth the price?
