Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ellen Welty
Listing over 1200 resources that teachers and librarians can use in their classrooms and library instruction, this handy reference is nicely arranged in subject areas. Within each broad subject area the offerings are further divided into more detailed subjects and then into specific topics. For example, the chapter titled Science is divided first into Concepts and Processes, Inquiry, Physical Science, Life Science, Earth and Space Science, Technology and History. The second division includes topics like Electricity, the Human Body, Bugs, Mammals, Plants, Weather, Water and Space Travel. At the end of the listing for each topic there is a selection of activities that teachers might consider for their classes ranging from weblinks and hands-on activities to suggestions for field trips. Each broad subject chapter includes a section titled Teacher Resources consisting of professional organizations, books and media aimed at practitioners and internet sites for further exploration. Each chapter also includes a bibliography. There is an author/illustrator index, a title index and a subject index at the end. The list of books included in each subject area encompasses dates up to early 2010. While useful for school librarians, the true benefactors of this extremely practical guide would be classroom teachers. Very highly recommended. Reviewer: Ellen Welty
School Library Journal
This selection tool is designed for both teachers and librarians to integrate quality literature throughout the curriculum. The authors include more than 1200 books, videos, software, CDs, cassettes, and Internet sites, arranged by broad subject categories such as mathematics, science, and social studies, with related professional organizations listed at the end. The introduction includes suggestions on how educators can meet the needs of individual students, help them to make personal connections, extend learning, and respond to literature; followed by ways to incorporate writing, discussion ideas, and questioning techniques in their classes; and wraps up with some general tips for book selection and using children's literature. Each entry includes bibliographic information, but no ISBN or price. Citations include grade level and a short annotation. Perhaps the heart of each chapter is the list of "Explorations." These ideas for extending the book include dialogue journals, writing workshops, dramatization, and cooking. Many of the ideas are interactive and all can be utilized with curriculum-related suggestions. This title presents a starting point for collaboration between teacher and librarian as well as collection-development support. Librarians not familiar with national standards in curricular areas will find the background information within each chapter useful. The appendix includes teacher resources, professional organizations, Internet sites, and media sources. Access is provided by both subject and author/title index. This fine resource incorporates good literature into the curriculum. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
