Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
By using the literary magic of favorite fantasy authors as a hook, librarians and reading teachers can conjure up lessons sure to interest even the most reluctant student. Stover presents 15 stand-alone exercises designed to teach and reinforce library skills, research techniques, and literary concepts. Some examples are "Magical Manuscripts: The Dewey Decimal System," "Detailed Diaries: Defining Primary and Secondary Sources," and "A Beastly Bibliography: Citing Your Sources." Each entry begins with a quote and a story synopsis of a book by a popular writer. Students don't need to have read the book to participate in the activities. The author also presents ways to manage the lesson for students who are uncomfortable with or not allowed to read fantasy. An introduction, time involved, objectives, materials, procedure, a subjective evaluation, and an enrichment extension are included, as are visuals and activity sheets. Up-to-date library and literacy lessons are always welcome, and these are winners.-Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
