Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Not just an anthology, this extensive index offers keyword, title, and author name access to more than 1,800 quotations from nearly 500 classic, award-winning, and popular works for children. Pearls of humor and wisdom from authors such as the Brothers Grimm, Dr. Seuss, Judith Viorst, and Shel Silverstein are at your fingertips. Very few quotations have been indexed in other works, making this a unique tool to find that elusive quote. A sure-to-please reference tool for school and public libraries-not just in children's departments-this book helps you identify the source of unusual terms or names such as tesseract or Who-ville and makes a great resource for locating quotes addressing special occasions. Fun for browsing!
