Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In this second edition Pat Miller has updated several of her activities, including updated Web sites. She demonstrates how to pair fiction and nonfiction, an important concept for teaching reading comprehension strategies. Her focus includes collaborating and emphasizes student achievement. Her activities cover the spectrum of the elementary school curriculum and provide fun library activities to support classroom learning. She includes information on customizing the lessons and meeting local standards. For librarians working on a fixed schedule, it is important to note that many of her lessons can be completed in a single session. Necessary reproducibles are included. This is a worthy purchase for anyone looking at quick ways to put some zip in their library lessons."

School Library Journal

Miller's relevant and practical ideas give how-to steps for integrating drama, music, and movement into the school library curriculum. The author discusses methods for cooperating and collaborative planning between media specialists and elementary teachers. The chapter on pairing nonfiction and fiction is a hot topic for thematic units like the Westward Expansion. The book includes reproducible masters for activities, with the necessary patterns. The last chapter gives suggestions for improving boys' literacy habits. A useful resource for busy educators who want to create an interest in collaboration between media specialists and classroom teachers.-Kathleen Pavin, Purdy Elementary School Library, Fort Atkinson, WI
