On Order



Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, A Wrinkle in Time, Blubber, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark --these are some of the most beloved, and most challenged, books. Leaving controversial titles such as these out of your collection or limiting their access is not the answer to challenges. The best-selling Hit List series gives you the information you need to defend challenged books with an informed response, all the while ensuring free access to young book lovers.

Featuring 24 "hot button" books, Hit List for Children 2 presents a who's who of children's literature writers including Dahl, Allard, Blume, Rowling, Stine, L'Engle, Lowry, and Naylor. With a profile of each book that includes its plot, characters, published reviews, awards and prizes, and author resources, you will be prepared to answer even the toughest attacks. The most recent and compelling challenges are also discussed so that you will be prepared to address specific points. Eleven new books have been added to the second edition including Mommy Laid an Egg, the Alice series, Witches, and Guess What?

For any librarian who feels alone on the front lines of the free access debate, the appendix reassuringly details what ALA stands ready to do to help librarians combat censorship. Authoritative and powerful, Hit List for Children 2 provides the most up-to-date reference to those children's titles often singled out for censorship.

"School Library Journal" İncelemesi

In the past 10 years, the American Library Association's Office for Intellectual Freedom has had reports of more than 6700 attempts to ban or restrict access to library and curricular materials throughout the nation. Judy Blume's Blubber, Brock Cole's The Goats, Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's "Alice" series, Lois Lowry's The Giver, and J. K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" books are among the 24 books featured in the first book. Among the 20 books featured in the second title are Marion Dane Bauer's Am I Blue? Coming Out from the Silence, Nancy Garden's Annie on My Mind, Robert Cormier's The Chocolate War, and Paul Zindel's The Pigman. Each entry includes a lengthy annotation; a discussion of some of the challenges to the title; relevant articles, awards and prizes; references to biographical information about the author; and sources recommending the novel. These slim books provide the necessary information to help teachers and librarians deal with censorship cases. The authors also make the point that the ALA Office for Intellectual Freedom is available to assist with challenges to materials, and the specific services they offer is discussed in the appendixes.-Pat Scales, South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities, Greenville (c) Copyright 2010.
