In connection with the fabled (purported?) 2nd ed of my collection
development book, Randy Pitman and I are scouting around for useful print
resources--books and journals--useful as aids to selecting movies for kids
(NB--that's MOVIES as in feature films...not kidvid or non-fiction stuff).

I've come across:

The Parents Guide to the Best Family Videos : Great Movies for Parents and
Kids to Share
by Patricia S. McCormick, Steve Cohen.

Anyone familiar with it?

Other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. If you recommend
something, it'd be useful to get a brief (few line) description of the work.
