This annotated bibliography-organized geographically by world region and country, describing nearly 700 books representing 73 countries-is a valuable resource for librarians, teachers, and anyone else seeking to promote international understanding through children's literature. It is the third volume sponsored by the United States Board on Books for Young People. The first, Carl M. Tomlinson's Children's Books from Other Countries (1998) is a compendium of international children's literature with annotations of both in and out of print books published between 1950 and 1996. Susan Stan's The World Through Children's Books (2002) was the second and it included books published between the years 1997 and 2000. Crossing Boundaries includes international children's books published between 2000 and 2004, as well as selected American books set in countries other than the United States. Editor Doris Gebel has compiled an important tool for providing stories that will help children understand our differences while simultaneously demonstrating our common humanity.

As with the earlier titles, this is a valuable source for collection development. * Booklist, 1/1/2007 *
This is a fairly extensive resource for building or enhancing a collection with international flair, something that will have increasing importance as libraries' clientele continue to diversify and interest in international material expands. * The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books *
This is an important resource for all libraries to build and promote collections that reflect a global vision. * School Library Journal, January 2007 *
...particularly valuable....this book should be in every library's professional collection. * The Trumpet, Children's Literature Association of Suffolk County, Vol. 24, No. 3 *

Because of such a splendid resource, it's never been easier! -- Ginny Moore Kruse, School of Education, University of Wisconsin-Madison
Organized geographically by region and country, this annotated bibliography lists nearly 700 children's books dealing with international themes and topics. The focus is on international titles published between 2000 and 2004 as well as selected American books set in countries outside the U.S. The final section provides information on publishers with an international focus as well as sources for foreign-language and bilingual books. * Reference and Research Book News, August 2006 *
