WILL SIT STILL FOR 3: A READ-ALOUD GUIDE
Based on her extensive experience as a children's literature
consultant, international workshop presenter, children's book
reviewer, and storyteller, former school librarian Judy Freeman has
poured her heart and soul into her first major book in a decade.
It features a massive, annotated bibliography of her 1,700 favorite
read-aloud titles, all published within the last 10 years, that will
keep children in grades PreK through 6 enthralled. These titles
range from picture books and fiction, folklore, and poetry to
biography and nonfiction. Each entry provides a meaty plot summary
so you can be reminded of what the book's about if you've read it,
or be enticed to pick it up if you haven't.
There's a killer list of related titles to use for read-alouds,
read-alones, thematic units, booktalks, and book discussion groups;
and a list of subject headings so you can see where a book might fit
into your curriculum, your library program, or your life. Best of
all, there are Judy's "Germs": curriculum tie-ins and suggested
activities to foster higher level thinking skills and response to
literature, including writing and illustrating prompts, research
strategies, discussion questions, and problem solving ideas.
The book starts with extensive, all-new chapters offering
entertaining, informative, and instantly useful approaches to
reading aloud, storytelling, creative drama, Reader's Theater, and
nonstop classroom and library activities across the curriculum.
There is also an updated bibliography of professional books.
"Wow! What a book!" is what Judy is hoping the critics will say. To
