Recently came across some terrific children’s literature bibliographies compiled by Kathleen Collins, the Children’s and Young Adult Literature Specialist at the University of Washington. (Aside: What a cool job!) They appear to have been created in conjunction with exhibits within the UW libraries.
- Every Picture Tells a Story: The Art of Narrative in Wordless Books (2006)
- Images of Blackness in American Children’s Picture Books, 1899 – 1999 (2006)
- Twice Upon A Time: Fairytales Revisited (2005)
- Books We Have Loved: Children’s Literature Favorites of [University of WA] Libraries Staff
They’re all great resources. I plan to seek out the wordless books I haven’t read in the Ann Arbor District Library’s catalog. Hope they’re useful for you too.
