Over the past several years we have become increasingly convinced that there is a need for a list of titles to answer requests and to stimulate teachers and students to read more widely and to choose quality literature in a period when mediocrity in literature is rampant. In the deluge of children's and young adult books published annually, critics have stated that few titles will survive "the test of time". We have, therefore, attempted to provide an exemplary list representative of the universal themes in literature and designed to expose junior high and middle school readers to a wide variety of the genre found in drama, poetry, nonfiction and fiction. No attempt has been made to enumerate all the good literature available in the classics, modem classics and potential classics. We hoped only to offer a bibliography of titles which are examples of the literature today and yesterday which are worthwhile reading. We have tried to make our list long enough to provide many good choices. There was no thought on our part that any student should expect or be expected to read all of these titles. Inclusion In this bibliography does not represent endorsement of a title or Its topic by the Iowa Department of Education. We hope, however, our list will assist teachers and students in improving the breadth and quality of reading in Iowa's junior high and middle schools. The compilers of this junior high/middle school (6-9) bibliography issued a revised high school bibliography, Annotated Bibliography for High School Reading, earlier in 1992 and have released Annotated Bibliography for Upper Elementary, 1985 and an Annotated Bibliography for Lower Elementary, 1990. Beginning in 1992, new titles in the series will be available only on computer disk.
