About the Book: 
What might be most valuable about this book is Baker's plain statements about the function and benefit of "intercultural" books for young readers in the introductory pages of the annotated bibliography. Books range from the 1940s to the early 1960s, and are subdivided into fiction, folklore, science (books about race), poetry, biography, and other genres. The 1949 edition is sectioned as follows: Stories, Folklore, Literature and the Arts, Singers, Biography, Poetry (late 1920s to 1940s).
