Overview

Help students develop their own special talents and interests while supporting student literacy, social development, and a lifelong interest in reading through connecting books to children's hobbies. Each of the book's 30 chapters focuses on a different hobby through an annotation of a picture book in which the targeted hobby has a key role. Jurenka further explores each hobby ranging from bird-watching to tap dancing through a starter activity, a language arts activity, a poem citation, a glossary of associated vocabulary, references to related societies and associations, and five annotations of nonfiction informational books. Not only will students enthusiastically read about their chosen hobbies, they will develop healthy lifelong passions for activities that positively affect their social and intellectual development.
