Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
Jim Trelease is a national treasure for his dedicated commitment to promoting the value of books in a child's life and the importance of parents reading to their children. The Read-Aloud Handbook is a rich, informative work with many anecdotal success stories of parents, businessmen, schools, libraries and even states that have been inspired by Jim's message to take action. His comments on comic books, fairy tales, TV, censorship, Sustained Silent Reading, and the "Good News and Bad" about students' achievements make this required reading. The treasury of great read-alouds has been expanded and updated.
Library Journal
Revising his 1985 edition, Trelease preaches the reading gospel with undiminished fervor. Updated evidence from scholarly and journalistic sources (50 percent post-1985) bolsters his case for reading aloud from infancy through adolescence. Trelease addresses parents, but directs considerable homiletic energy toward librarians, pediatricians, clergy, and above all, schools: a new chapter cites individual, state, and district ``success stories.'' There is a new list of ``predictable'' (i.e., cumulative or repetitive) books, and over 70 synopses are of books published 1985-89. Most choices are excellent. Wider in scope than parent guides like Eden R. Lipson's Parent's Guide to the Best Books for Children ( Times Bks., 1988), Michele Landsberg's Reading for the Love of It (LJ 11/15/87), or Betsy Hearne's Choosing Books for Children (LJ 5/1/81), Trelease's book covers a broader age range and is easier to use than Masha Rudman and Anna M. Pierce's For Love of Reading (Consumer Reports Bks., 1988). His enthusiasm is infectious, and his ``related readings'' suggestions are invaluable (and unique).-- Patricia Dooley, Univ. of Washington Lib. Sch. , Seattle
