"Benson's bibliography is a valuable contribution to the study of the dying child and the sensitive issues that the family, medical staff, school personnel, and others must face when confronted with this challenge. Comprehensive annotations, some as lengthy as a full page of text, give the essence of the article and its intended use. . . . The appendixes are a wealth of practical information, with lists of children's books and AV material, support organizations, wish-granting organizations, and hospices. No other comparable bibliography exists on the subject. This excellent sourcebook is highly recommended." Choice

?Benson's bibliography is a valuable contribution to the study of the dying child and the sensitive issues that the family, medical staff, school personnel, and others must face when confronted with this challenge. Comprehensive annotations, some as lengthy as a full page of text, give the essence of an article and its intended use. This is the sixth title in the well-received Contemporary Problems of Childhood' series, and the format is similar to other volumes (i.e., well organized, well indexed, easy to use.) Covering the period 1960-87, Benson includes more than 700 monographs, government documents, dissertations, and popular and professional journal articles in medicine, allied health, education, psychology, and social work. After general aspects, ' material is classified into sections on the young child, the adolescent, the family, the care givers, and physical care. The appendixes are a wealth of practical information, with lists of children's books and AV material, support organizations, wish-granting organizations, and hospices. No other comparable bibliography exists on the subject. This excellent sourcebook is highly recommended to professional, graduate, and udergraduate libraries, both upper and lower division.?-Choice
