Description: From School Library Journal
One of the most time-consuming aspects of preparing a booktalk, besides choosing the right book, is picking just the right passages or pictures to hook listeners. Not only have Baxter and Kochel put together a wonderful collection of more than 350 nonfiction books, but they also suggest excerpts or sections that are sure to start the audience drooling. The volume is arranged into seven thematic chapters: "Great Disasters," "Fun Stuff," "Animals," "Unsolved Mysteries," "Science and Fun Experiments to Do," "Fascinating People," and "Our Wonderful, Terrible Past." The titles are presented within each chapter in a conversational style that is extremely readable and entertaining; useful bibliographies following each section assign appropriate grade levels to the books. The authors also give general tips on organizing booktalks. This is an exceptional resource for anyone working with children in grades 1-8 in either a school or public library setting.
