Description: From School Library Journal
This is a wonderful book to give to parents who want to extend their child's reading beyond the school day as the information about guiding a child's reading is written with them in mind. It will also be useful for public and school librarians in developing subject bibliographies. There are tips on topics ranging from reading aloud to using books to enhance field trips and travel. The arrangement falls under eight broad categories: animals; arts and crafts; folklore and fantasy; history and adventure; games, puzzles, hobbies, and holidays; science, math, and technology; sports; and transportation and engineering. Books were chosen because librarians and teachers have found them to be great read-alouds or big hits with independent readers. Most of the titles are standard, recommended books, and bibliographic information includes everything except the ISBN. The arrangement within the broad categories is by age level. This requires use of the index to determine if a title has been included. Fortunately, there are separate indexes for author, title, and subject.
