101 Great, Ready-to-Use Book Lists for Children
246 pages • 8½ x 11
This fantastic collection of 101 ready-to-use book lists—all created in consultation with teachers and public librarians—provides invaluable help for any educator who plans activities for children that involve using literature.
For librarians and teachers who are tasked with suggesting reading materials to children, it can be extremely time-consuming to search for books that support the theme of a lesson —especially ones that are current and appeal to young minds. That's why informed, up-to-date readings lists are so helpful to professional educators.
Nancy J. Keane is the author of the award-winning website BooktalksQuick and Simple (nancykeane.com/booktalks), as well as the creator of the open collaboration wiki ATN Book Lists. With 101 Great, Ready-to-Use Book Lists for Children, she provides another indispensable resource for librarians and teachers.
The lists in this book are the result of careful consultation with teachers and public librarians, and from discussions on professional email lists. These resource lists can be utilized in many ways —for example, as handouts to teachers as suggested reading, to create book displays, or as display posters in the library. This collection will facilitate the creation of valuable reading lists to support the extended reading demands of today's children.
