<excerpt>How about <underline>The New York Times Guide to the Best
Childrens' Videos</underline> , the "definitive, authoritative,
all-inclusive guide to more than 1,000 children's videos", including over
500 family films and 100+ CD-Roms. The book is compiled by KIDS FIRST! an
initiative of the Coalition for Quality Children's Media
<italic>(www.cqcm.org)</italic>. This organization is "the only" national
non-profit organization that uses adult <italic>and</italic> children to
evaluate media. To get a KIDS FIRST! endorsement the film can't have
violence or sexual behavior, physical or verbal abuse, racial, gender,
cultural or religious bias, condescension toward children or unsafe
behavior. Listings are organized by age, from infancy to adolescence. It
covers a wide range of categories (holiday, naature, fairy tales, etc.),
it's annotated, employs a rating system and provides a "Producers"
appendix.

Is this what you're looking for? Jan Derks

<excerpt>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.

Merci!
