Librarians and teachers will find this guide invaluable for introducing young readers to various typical family situations through contemporary and classic literature.

The Family in Literature for Young Readers: A Resource Guide for Use with Grades 4 to 9 provides a thorough exploration of the diversity of modern family structure and composition as depicted in contemporary literature for young readers.
