Review quote

"Librarians know the value of using picture books to teach a variety of skills; now, there is a book for the classroom teacher outlining and standardizing the ways to use picture books to teach writing skills. The author includes chapters on using character, selling, plot, theme and style, and reproducible worksheets to facilitate the process. Helpful to librarians will be the comprehensive list of titles that the classroom teacher can reproduce to assist in the borrowing of these titles, or for purchase. The titles in the text explanation of each chapter could be in a larger print; most teachers will want to highlight their copies for use 'on the fly.' Helpful to the classroom teacher is the inclusion of NCTE (National Council of Teachers of English) standards that correlate with each activity. A few word-free books are used, but most are well-known titles that will be easily accessible to the middle school teacher. This is a title that could open the doors to collaboration between a classroom teacher and librarian. Recommended." - Library Media Connectionshow more
