Abstract:

"The field of children's literature has produced a number of authors and books which the children's librarian must be able to evaluate wisely. The ability to select critically, not only for literary quality, but also for appeal to the child is a prime requisite for librarians, teachers, and parents. From the authors in this vast field Meindert De Jong has been chosen as a subject for a bio-bibliographic study. Such a study should prove valuable to a children's librarian as training for future judgments since his books have met with varying degrees of acceptance. It has additional value because Meindert De Jong has received the Newbery Award and has also been a runner-up. The purpose of this paper is to examine Meindert De Jong's books for children and to summarize the criticisms of these works as found in periodical reviews. In addition, this study will present such biographical and general background informations as may be of assistance in evaluating his work"--
