Review quote

"Carol Littlejohn has gleaned the best booktalks from her previously published professional resources for the school library media specialist and featured them in a wonderful resource for middle grade English, science, and social studies teachers. To introduce these classroom teachers to the art of booktalking, she briefly explains successful strategies for enticing students to read outstanding books. Each booktalk is bracketed on the left with a sidebar that provides guides to genre and to those books great for special needs students, such as gifted, English language learners, and those in special education. Notes follow each booktalk. These notes provide the teacher with supplemental details, such as inclusion of profanity or sexual issues, along with more information about the plot or interesting characters. Extensive indexing of titles, genres, and curricular areas adds to this outstanding tool for teachers to use to build reading within the content areas. All middle level teachers or school librarians will find great success by using these booktalks as a fun and inspirational way to promote reading. Even teachers leery of booktalking will be amazed with their students' enthusiasm for reading after listening to these talks. These discussions will also prompt many students to create booktalks to share with their peers. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connectionshow more
