Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Library Media specialists and teachers in kindergarten through third grade will make good use of this book of lesson plans, which proceeds through the school year using picture books….Very well organized, this book would be an asset for any educator seeking to enrich the language arts curriculum, specifically library skills. An appendix lists the titles that especially conform to the standards of information literacy, independent learning, and social responsibility….Recommended."
