Croatian Children's books NEEDED

Can you suggest some good books on
Croatia, its folk life, folktales, kid novels, geographies, stories, et al,
published in English recently that could be included in a "For additional
reading" section for this book on Croatia.

Children's books, Croatia

Dear Nenad--

--Congratulations on creating a great resource for news and Croatian
cultural awareness! I really enjoy every issue and especially your
editorials.

I am forwarding to you (for CROWN) a request from Marting Hintz who is
compiling an encyclopedic resource including a section on Croatian
children's literature. He wants to add a section of suggested readings.
Perhaps someone on this distribution can help, by listing children's books
or Croatian fairy tales they read to their children, travel guides /
geography / popular history resources on Croatia in English (perhaps even
music), that would be appropriate for children & young adults. He wants to
get titles that are readily available in Canadian and American bookstore
chains. So, if anyone has any suggestions from what they used with their
children or shared with family & friends in North America, they can
forward a reference directly to Mr. Martin Hintz. He will be very grateful
and it is also important to present Croatia correctly and in the best
light in this published encyclopedic work that will disseminate
information about Croatian children's literature.

Hopefully, this will be possible to distribute to the readership CROWN
list. If it is not, I will look for other ways to help him out. Thanks,
again.

Best,
Marija

Ms. Dalbello - another question - can you suggest some good books on
Croatia, its folklife, folktales, kid novels, geographies, stories, et al,
published in English recently that could be included in a "For additional
reading" section for this book on Croatia.

I'd need the usual bibliographic info (author, title, place of publishing,
publisher, date of publishing, pages).

They should be age-specific - aimed at 9-13 year olds (middle school).
Each should also be readily available to get in US and Canadian bookstores
or libraries, as well.

Thanks for any tips.

Martin Hintz
