BOOKS KIDS 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 order your copy, go to www.LU.com
