Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This title is written for those who love and care for preschoolers. It is intended to enhance the research-based Developmental Assets of support, empowerment, boundaries and expectations, constructive use of time, commitment to learning, positive values, social competence, and positive identity, through the shared reading of fine children's books. Chapters are tied to a specific Developmental Asset and feature five books that promote that asset. For instance, for empowerment, the adult reader might choose "You Can Do It, Sam" or "Flower Garden." Each Developmental Asset category or chapter contains an intro, an overview of each title, ways to promote talk before and after reading, three activities, and a list of additional books. For first-time parents, it is a great how-to on the importance of reading for building good readers, as well as for building a relationship with a preschooler. Just establishing a routine of reading and spending time together, one-on-one, can be beneficial to both adults and children. It is an excellent resource for preschool programs, such as Head Start, that encourage parents to read and spend quality time with their children. A listing and explanation of all Developmental Assets, featured books, bonus books, a checklist for evaluating a child's readiness for reading, as well as additional resources and acknowledgements, are included. 2005, Search Institute, Ages Adult.
