Authors of Books for Young People by Martha Ward and Dorothy Marquardt (1971) is the Second Edition of a book that was used for many years as an aid to building a great Children's Library. 

Below are authors and titles that were referenced in the book that I have also had (and may currently have) in stock. 

This is a great reference to still build a great children's library if you are focusing on pre 1970's Children's Literature.
