Review quote

"As she did in Rhymes and Reasons: Librarians and Teachers Using Poetry to Foster Literacy, (Linworth, 2003), Heitman presents a well-organized and comprehensive look at how fairy tales can be infused into the curriculum. Focusing on collaboration between librarians and teachers, she offers a series of lessons that correlate to both the NCTE standards for the English/Language Arts as well as AASL's Information Literacy Standards. The book includes ways in which the various lessons can be adapted for special and English-language learners, as well as numerous templates for writing, speaking, and listening activities. While some experienced librarians will recognize many tried-and-true activities, there is also a great deal of fresh material, and newer teachers/librarians will appreciate the wealth of information. This excellent resource deserves a place in most professional collections." - School Library Journalshow more
