Synopsis

Developing Learning Skills Through Children's Literature An Idea Book for K-5 Classrooms and Libraries by Terri Parker Street, Letty S. Watt

This is not a revision but an entirely updated volume of selected high-quality literature published from 1986 to 1993. Volume 2 shows how to create a literature-based program--either thematic or across the curriculum--based on quality contemporary and classic literature. The authors explain how to select the most appropriate books and how to use them in the classroom to encourage learning through literature. Each volume contains six chapters arranged by grade level and divided into units covering books on a particular topic or theme, books by a particular author, or books of a particular type or genre.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
