As part of the total program for the improvement of Florida schools,
the State Department of Education has made available a number
of bulletins planned specifically as aids for improving instruction.
These publications have received wide distribution and have been
used by many faculty groups. The use to which these materials have
been put has resulted in improving the teaching in a large number
of classrooms in the state.
The Florida program for the improvement of schools has from
the beginning emphasized a broad use of materials in the classroom.
Much time and effort have been spent in clarifying the objectives
of education, in defining the various areas and their contribution
to the general aims of the schools, and in planning the many sub-
jects within each area. The state textbook list contains, for the most
part, titles which are well suited to the development of the various
courses outlined in each area. It is fully realized, however, that
an improved instructional program cannot be achieved by use of
the textbooks alone. Therefore, the titles contained in State-Adopted
Library Books for Florida Schools are selected, first, for their value
in supplementing the present state-adopted texts and, second, for
their value in improving the instructional program as a whole.
Praise and appreciation are extended the members of the commit-
tee who prepared the bulletin. In a very short period of time
through hard work, they were able to produce an outstanding piece
of material. The members of the committee were: Mrs. Clara L.
Wood Alexander, St. Petersburg; Mrs. M. P. Bratzel, Ft. Lauderdale;
Mrs. Bessie M. Crowell, Clearwater; Mrs. Leona S. Davis, Babson
Park; Mrs. Mary Easters, St. Petersburg; Miss Aida L. Garcia,
Tampa; Miss Emma Holt, Hawthorn; Mrs. Annie Lytle Housh,
Jacksonville; Mrs. Mabel J. Howard, Eustis; Miss Betty Lou Inger-
mann, West Palm Beach; Miss Mildred Kerby, Punta Gorda; Miss
Selma McAnally, Melbourne; Miss Altha McLendon, Jacksonville;
Miss Bessie Miner, Orlando; Miss Jean Moore, Lake Helen; Miss
Emma Lee Owen, Sanford; Miss Portia L. Phillips, Ocala; Miss
Eleanor V. Skeen, Pompano; and Mrs. G. A. Wall, Ft. Lauderdale.
Especial appreciation and recognition are here accorded the gen-
eral consultant, Miss Eulah Mae Snider of the State Library Board,
under whose capable leadership the bulletin was prepared and pro-
duced; Miss Nora Beust, Specialist in School Libraries, of the U. S.
Office of Education, who rendered very valuable consultative service
in planning and reviewing the work of the committee; and Mrs.
Bernice Ashburn Mims of the General Extension Division, University
of Florida, for her splendid service in connection with this material.

The purpose of this bulletin is to recommend a selective list of
library books which will supplement textbooks as well as aid in
enriching and implementing the curriculum in Florida schools.
This list consists of approximately 1500 titles. It does not provide
all the book needs, but the titles included are first purchase in all
Criteria for Selection of Book Titles
Some preliminary planning preceded the work of the Committee.
Groups of teachers, librarians, and administrators discussed the
needs and special problems relative to library books. A study of
books and package libraries requested by schools from the General
Extension Divi; ion, University of Florida, was made. The Com-
mittee gave careful consideration to the findings of the study. They
thoughtfully reviewed the aims of education, the nature of learning,
and the proposed curriculum as set forth by the various bulletins
of the Florida Program for the Improvement of Schools.'
The selection of books to meet the basic needs of boys and girls
requires an understanding of the aims and objectives of Florida's
long range educational program, a knowledge of the pre; ent program
of studies, and insight into its special problems. The members of
the Committee were teachers, librarians, and principals with ex-
perience in primary, intermediate, junior, and senior high schools
of the state. They had at their disposal to examine first hand
about 15,000 books and standard recommended library lists.
With the bar ic assumption that there should be materials on all
phases of child development-mental, physical, social, and emotional
-the Committee began to search for materials. Books on the fol-
lowing life interests were considered of vital importance to all
schools: health; economic and vocational aspects of life; books
which were useful for their sheer beauty, or literary and esthetic
value, as well as tho e for pure fun and enjoyment; those books
which lead to worthwhile leisure time activities such as handicrafts,
sports and hobbies; books on conduct and ethics, and how to get
along and work with others; books on the heritage of our race and
the contributions of mankind to civilization in various fields of
human endeavor such as science, history, mathematics, art, literature,

Practice in Florida Elementary Schools, Bulletin No. 9; A Guide to a Functional
Program in the Secondary School, Bulletin No. 10.

religion, with special emphasis on our American way of life; books
which portray life and customs of peoples-their trade, their in-
dustry, their government, home and family life, education, social
and economic problems; and books on the development of democratic
Many books were examined but relatively few selected. Those
selected had to measure up to the following requirements:
1. Will the book be as useful in the small school as in the large
2. Is the book a first purchase item in any school?
3. Will the book fill some special need in the total school program ?
4. Does the book treat of the more general aspects of the subject
rather than the technical and special aspects ?
5. Will it meet the standards of a good book?
a. Is the material worthwhile? Has the theme been developed
honestly and sincerely? Are opinions and conclusions un-
biased? Have the facts been presented accurately?
b. Is the book well written? Are sentences complete and in
good form? Is the style simple but forceful ? Is the diction
suitable to the grade level ?
c. Is the book true to life? Are the incidents probable in terms
of the time, place, and characters?
d. Is the book ethically sound? How are the problems of right
and wrong treated ? Are they fair, honest, in keeping with
established social standards? Does the book contain any-
thing that would disturb boys and girls emotionally?
e. Is the book interesting to the reader? Does the author have
the technique for holding the reader's interest ?
f. Is the book readable from a physical standpoint? Does it
have clear print, good margins, and suitable illustrations ?

Selecting and Ordering Books

Money spent from textbook funds should be in addition to the
minimum 25c per student appropriated by county and local school

Is it desirable to select a variety of materials rather than many
copies of a few titles ? In most cases one copy of a single title will be
sufficient, and no more than five copies of any single title should be
requisitioned for one school, regardless of size.

In counties where funds are limited and the need for books acute,
it is desirable for the textbook funds to be used to build up a
rotating or traveling collection to be used by all schools.

All teachers should participate in selection of books, but books
should be selected and made available for the whole school rather
than for individual classrooms. After selections are made, the
responsibility for checking with pret:ent book stock and balancing
the needs for the whole school should be given to the librarian or to
a teacher who is qualified to serve as chairman of the library

Where the book collections are small and the budgets are limited,
this list will be adequate for some time. Larger schools, to meet
their specific needs, may find it necessary to use in addition the
standard book selection aids on page 68 of this bulletin.

The bulletin does not attempt to evaluate sets of reference materials1
since the purchase of these will not be made from textbook funds.

Schools will be supplied with requisition forms as early as possible
after the contracts with publishers are completed. These requisition
forms will state specifically routines and discounts for ordering books
with textbook funds. Schools wishing to begin their selections
should keep in mind that these requisition blanks will list books by
publishers rather than by grade or subject.

Arrangements of Materials in this Bulletin

Books listed in this bulletin are grouped in four sections by grade
levels: 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12. Symbols "E", "A", or "M" appear
after each title. These indicate the reading difficulty as "Easy",
"Average", or "Mature". In each grade grouping the books are
arranged alphabetically by authors or series titles. Each title is
annotated with specific references to its content and use. Publishers,
dates, and list prices2 are also given.

It is not possible to rate library materials accurately by specific
grades. What boys and girls read depends upon their skills in
reading, their background in reading, and their general maturity.

'it is suggested that schools have an adequate supply of fiction, biography, travel,
and readable books in many subject fields before excessive funds are expended for
reference books. Librarians, principals, teachers, and county superintendents are
urged to examine any set of books with the greatest scrutiny before purchase. More
money is wasted in this respect than in any other, as relatively few sets are used
sufficiently in school libraries to justify their cost. Sets other than Compton's
Pictured Encyclopedia and the World Book Encyclopedia should not be considered
FOR PURCHASE, except perhaps in a few larger schools, until a wealth of challeng-
ing reading materials of superior quality is available. Many schools already have
Americana and Britannica encyclopedias, which are useful and excellent in quality,
but they are not first purchase or necessary in the average high school. One up-to-
date encyclopedia, an unabridged dictionary (Webster's New International or Funk
and Wagnall's New Standard), and the World Almanac will answer most of the
reference questions in the average school.
2These list prices are the original publication prices. Due to the war situation, a
few have advanced in price, and others may be subject to change.

Every grade has a wide range or reading interests and abilities.
Therefore, many titles will be useful in the grade grouping above
or below, where they are placed. Such books are placed in the lowest
group where they can be used, and the annotations, or descriptive
notes, indicate their use at higher levels. In selecting materials for
junior high schools it should be remembered that many of the
mystery and adventure stories listed in the 4-6 grouping will be read
equally as much if made available to grades 7-9. In the 7-9 grouping
many titles are marked 7-12. These will be first purchase in senior
high schools serving all grades; also those schools serving only grades
ten, eleven, and twelve, should choose these titles fir-nt.

There has been no special grouping of remedial reading materials,
but this need was kept in mind. The annotations, or descriptive
notes, mention the usefulness for poor readers. It is just as im-
portant to provide material for the mature reader. It is suggested
that in selecting material at any grade level some easy material be
selected from the grade grouping below. Most any book can be used
as remedial material so long as it is fitted to the interest and reading
ability of the student.
The subject index will be useful to teachers who wish to select
material for specific units or topics. This index gives all the material
on a specific subject and indicates the grade level.
