Brothers and Sisters of Retarded Children: an Exploratory Study
Submitter: I was searching the library’s catalogue yesterday for potential preschool storytime books using the subject heading “siblings” and stumbled upon this book. I was dumbfounded that a title like this still existed in our current collection and immediately recommended it for weeding.
Holly: Really? More books about “retarded” children? Seriously, folks, type the word “retarded” into your catalogs as a title keyword and then GO WEED THEM OFF YOUR SHELVES! Then, go find some new books with current terminology to put on your shelves. If there aren’t any, sacrifice having books on the subject until there are some and rely on articles and web sites in the meantime.
