Submitter: Although over 20 years old this book is not necessarily awful; it just needs some serious updating. What really caught me was the media in the back. This was just weeded from a rural public library system. We do weeding on a schedule year-round, but this year our main location went hard at the adult non-fiction section, and came across gems like this. Again, not awful in concept, just awfully out-of-date.
Holly: There’s a floppy disk in the back! Bibliography books get outdated so fast. This book had a limited shelf life because it is based on social issues, which themselves are dependent on currency. I wasn’t sure what “Fast-Track Families” are, but the book descriptions are about kids needing attention from on-the-go parents. These are all valid reasons for children’s books, but currency is key. I wonder if any titles from the Doris Hall of Infamy make an appearance in this book?
