Thousands of children's books are published each year
-some are outstanding, while others are not.
This book makes it easier for you to find the best
in children's nonfiction books, and it offers concrete,
classroom-tested ideas for presenting them to students
in irresistible ways. Booktalks for more than 350
nonfiction titles (appropriate for elementary
and middle school students) are organized according
to topics popular with young readers
-"Great Disasters," "Unsolved Mysteries," "Fascinating People,"
"Science," and "Fun Experiments to Do." In addition,
there are tips on booktalking, an outline for a booktalk program,
and a bibliography that can be used for collection development.
Appropriate grade levels for each book are cited.
Library Media Specialists will find this guide essential.
The thematic approach helps teachers search for titles
that correlate to curriculum areas or specific units of study.
Parents can use the book with their children
as a reading selection tool. Anyone who works
with young children will find this book an invaluable resource.
