Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This easytoread, howto guide would provide just the right amount of information to fledgling publishers who are motivated to put out a newspaper of their own. In chapters with titles like "Seven Steps to Creating a Newspaper," "Three Types of Newspaper Stories," and "Distribution" the book outlines the process of publishing a newspaper from the first step of covering the news to the last step of delivering the published paper. Journalism teachers in a variety of educational settings will be able to make much use of this slim book with its casual, but informative style; readerfriendly graphics, and adept balance between providing the details and painting the big picture. The authors and illustrator have collaborated on a number of other manuals including, The Young Author's DoIt Yourself Book and Putting on a Play. All are useful guides suited for both classroom and individual student use. 1998, The Millbrook Press, Ages 8 to 15, $8.95. Reviewer: Judy Katsh
