Editorial Reviews

Choice
Sadler covers the gamut of multicultural children's literature by using a variety of genres to ignite the process of fiction writing for the elementary-school student....This book is strongly recommended for the K-6 practicing teacher as well as undergraduate preservice teachers involved in teaching language arts.
RWT Magazine
Categorized booklists, journal activities, discussions about an author's "voice," writers' checklists, and more combine to make this book practical for any elementary school teacher.
