Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Sarah Hill
Rob Reid has included summaries and directions for read-alouds from more than 200 titles in books for elementary, junior high, and high school students. The book contains tips for successful read-alouds, a list of titles by subject (like historical fiction and comedy), and grade-level recommendations. The summaries for each title are a paragraph in length, and the directions for the ten-minute read-aloud are explained in detail. Unfortunately, actual text from the recommended book isn't included, but Reid notes things like, "Continue by reading the short chapter 6 and chapter 7" for Kate DiCamillo's Because of Winn Dixie (Candlewick, 2000). Older popular titles like Eoin Colfer's Artemis Fowl (Disney Hyperion, 2001) and Beverly Naidoo's The Other Side of Truth (Amistad, 2000) are discussed, as well as newer, well-liked titles such as Walter Dean Myers's Sunrise over Fallujah (Scholastic, 2008) and Heather Dyer's Ibby's Magic Weekend (Chicken House, 2008). The newest title noted was published in 2007, and the majority of titles are recommended for upper elementary and middle school students. Reid is a regular contributor to LibrarySparks and Book Links magazines. This title is recommended for any librarian who needs handy read-alouds, but the price is a bit daunting for librarians on a shoestring budget. Reviewer: Sarah Hill
School Library Journal
As an extension of his column in Book Links, Reid has collected 200 titles published between 2000 and 2008 that have both readability and general kid appeal. The titles are organized alphabetically by author, and the book includes subject and age-level indexes. Each selection has a cursory summary, grade-level range, and a suggestion for a 10-minute read-aloud, which either provides an introduction to the main characters or a glimpse into the story, usually enough to and make young readers want to pick up the book on their own. This last part is what makes the book so useful. Many librarians rely on the collective knowledge of their peers to create bibliographies, make recommendations, and share books with readers, and a resource such as this makes that job a bit easier. As the field of children’s literature continually expands, bibliographies that offer a focused view become more and more valuable.–Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School, Cambridge, MA
