The World's Best Thin Books What to Read When Your Book Report is Due Tomorrow by Joni Richards Bodart


The World's Best Thin Books What to Read When Your Book Report is Due Tomorrow by Joni Richards Bodart

Students, teachers, and librarians will love this handy little volume that describes 100 titles recommended for middle and high school students. Readable, attention-grabbing - all are less than 200 pages. Each entry lists title and author, provides information on characters, plot, and action, and even suggests topics to cover in a book report. Librarians and teachers will appreciate the inclusion of curricular areas and readability indexes, and students will find the appendix on approaches to writing a book report or booktalk a real gold mine.


Teachers compiling new book lists and librarians seeking high-quality shorter novels will like this, but it will be especially helpful to students who need to discover that brevity is not the only criterion for selecting a book. Booklist
