The books included in the bibliography were acquired during the school year 2004 - 2005 and 2005 - 2006 by the Xavier Grade School LRC. There were only twenty Filipiniana Children's story books identified as acquired and cataloged in the school year 2005 - 2006. The list of acquired books for school year 2004-2005 is currently not available since it is being counterchecked. To add more titles to the bibliography, suggestions from the librarians were solicited. An additional ten titles were included in the first thirty annotations.
This, however, is not solely a term project but also a work in progress for the Filipiniana Collection of the Xavier Grade School Learning Resource Center.
IV. Background of the Project
The project was inspired by the queries of teachers for books to be used in instruction. Since they are using the Literature Based Approach in teaching reading and language arts skills, they need more trade books. There are plenty foreign books to choose from but little is known from the growing produce of Filipiniana for children.
Since the GS LRC supports the academic program of the school and operates on a resource based program, this annotated bibliography shall greatly help teachers in instruction, likewise, the translation of the school's academic goals.
The bibliography shall be arranged alphabetically by subject and author.
