Expanding literature beyond the covers of a single book into every facet of the curriculum, from reading/language arts to math, social studies, music, physical education, and science and health, this volume is truly a celebration of reading. Thirty-five high-quality books, selected on the basis of interest level and application to the needs of reluctant readers, are presented with critical thinking questions, activities, and a host of other energizing ideas for the reading program, from making wind socks and tree diaries to raising tadpoles and brine shrimp. Guidelines for motivating students and encouraging active participation introduce the concepts and methodology of this exciting approach. Demonstrating the power and beauty of literature, it stimulates the perception of reading not only as a requisite part of every course and every subject, but as a natural and normal part of every student's life. Grades 2-5.
