4-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Resource
This is one textbook I actually enjoy reading! If you are interested in Young Adult literature, either from an educator's or a parental perspective, this book is a great place to learn more.Of course, being a textbook, there is a section on the history of the genre, but it's actually interesting.But the best feature of this bookis the the Focus Boxes which list current titles with brief summaries as examples of each format and genre.Also useful is a chronological list of award-winning books which appears near the beginning of the book.This is one text I plan to keep, then replace with newer editions as they are published.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource for anyone interested in YA Lit
This textbook type book is an easy read, full of information regarding young adult characteristics in appealing writings, the growth and development of young adult literature and excellent listings, bibliographies and related web sites.Anyone working with young adults and literature will find this book a treasure.

5-0 out of 5 stars A very good resource.
Literature for Today's Young Adults, by Aleen Pace Nilsen and Kenneth L. Donelson, Sixth Edition. I purchased this book for a class in adolescent literature, and have found to be the book very good and very thorough.The book includes many chapters about modern adolescent literature and their various controversies.Besides being an interesting book, I found it very thorough because it includes varied points of view, and includes many articles written by the authors themselves who write novels for young adults. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The best book I've read on creating readers....
One and a half years ago, my kindergartener was reading at a 3rd grade level but lacked "comprehension". While he could retell basic plot elements, he appeared to lack any ability to synthesize or think about what he had read.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good read!
This book is easy to read and follow.I am studying to teach and this is one of the few books not written by a Dr. so it offers a fresh perspective!

5-0 out of 5 stars Important Home and Classroom Education
Who doesn't like to be read to?This book solidifies the feeling that reading to children builds their vocabulary, their desire to read and more over their ability to read fluently.It's all about modeling.

4-0 out of 5 stars If you are new to leveling books...
This book is a great resource if you are new to leveling books. It has helped me a great deal because I don't have any of their other titles, so it is not a repeat of information. This book also has the levels of many newly published books. If you want more leveled books, though, I found a great website with tons of them for sale: www.whoossmart.com .

2-0 out of 5 stars steep price, content lacking at times
This book possesses the unfortunate combination of a high price and too many missing book titles.Not a good value for the money, in my opinion.

3-0 out of 5 stars FYI
The title should have been the first clue.This reference contains thousands of books that are already leveled by the companies who sell them in bundles of six.I was hoping that this resource would have more trade books written by authors whose intent is to engage and entertain children. As the levels increase, the number of trade books does too, but the majority of books are already leveled. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Hard To Read Wealth of Children's Litature Course
If you plan to teach a children's literature course, then this book possesses nearly all of the information, history, and important milestones that you need...if you can get by the stilted language.
1-0 out of 5 stars Reads like telephone book!
This is by far the most boring text book I have ever read. I can't stomach it. It reads like one long boring bibliography. There are so many lists of children's books and their authors that any meaningful information gets lost. The authors of this book overload you with too much information and research that they are obviously very proud of but which puts a strain on your mind. I wanted to learn about the history of children's literature but I just couldn't get past the many, many, many list of children's books that litter the text. I just think that the lists should have been at the end of each chapter for those want to know that stuff. For those who just want the facts, like me, the book is useless. But that's my opinion.

4-0 out of 5 stars Thanks!

5-0 out of 5 stars Reading Magic
This is one of the best books I have read. It not only provides a useful guide of how to practice reading aloud to children it shatters many old ideas about teaching children to read. As a senior teacher at my school I will certainly recommend this for every teacher on staff, both young and old.

4-0 out of 5 stars Helpful information for parents willing to develop their childen readership
In general the book provides some simple tips of how to help your children to learn reading by having fun and develop a taste for reading. It worked for me, and I would recommend it for parents that are eager to provide their children with a push for developing this important skill.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Book by a Beloved Children's Author
As a Speech Language Pathologist and Children's Literacy Coach I can attest to the fact that reading to children is a critical element in literacy acquisition. Children must learn the flow of language and the variance and flexibility of words in order to appreciate literature and write well. Reading to children of ALL ages ( yes even middle and high school!) is critical for the development of advanced reading, writing and listening skills. What can be better than creativity and imagination being fostered during a warm, entertaining storytelling session.....with the stories coming from brilliant authors ( like Mem Fox)? I recommend this book to all my parents, my fellow teachers and to my friends. It makes a great book for new parents. It makes a great addition to any one's library who has an interest in children's literature, literacy or storytelling.Thank you Mem Fox for writing such a great book! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding summary and reference book for Kid Lit.
I have used the past four editions for a children's lit course for several years.The first five chapters provide an overvierw of approaching kid lit and a history of the field and its illustrators.The remainder has summaries of some 2000 books in various genres, areas and age ranges.The greatest aspect, and terrific for teaching or discussion, are the highlighted/boxed commentaries by various authors and experts.The appendices have lists of awards as well as short discussions on other media, getting kids and books together and censorship (boo, hiss.)A great text and invaluable resource. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars For scholarly children only
This massive tome cannot be meant for children. They would not be able to lift it. It is obviously a scholarly work meant more for scholars and students of Literature than for the 'little darlings' themselves.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great Anthology but wispy pages not for little hands.
Would recommend this book for adults to read to children.Has a great collection of tales and stories both classic and up to Dr. Suess.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Summertime of Reading
Here in one giant sized paperback book (supplied in a slipcase) is 2200 pages of the best of children's literature of the past 350 years. I suppose I should say this is one man's opinion of the best in literature because exchanging this title for that one could be the subject of many hours of discussion.

How does she do it?Another winner from Judy Freeman!More tips, annotations, bibliographies, storytelling, reader's theater etc..The amount of material is superb and the format is clear and precise.She is marvelous at what she does and can help any media specialist or teacher sharpen their book skills.
5-0 out of 5 stars Books Kids Will Sit Still For 3
Ever wished you could keep up all the great children's books and pick the best ones to read aloud and recommend to your students?Need inspiration to liven up your lessons on library skills?Looking for more effective ways to collaborate with teachers?This book has it all!
5-0 out of 5 stars You Gotta Get This Book
Third time is the charm for Freeman.This book is much more than just a revised and updated version.Judy has put all the book suggestions and "germs" like always, but she has included enough other librarian and book info to keep you going through many school years to come.How to share great books, extension activities, program management ideas, favorites over the years, and Judy's insights about books are too numerous to mention.As a school librarian for more than 500 PreK-6th grade students I know I'll have plenty of ideas for great book sharing and fun all year.I see 8 classes of pre-reading, 3-5 year olds each week and I know Judy's insight will help me build a strong literacy foundation with them.I bought the hardback because the book is so big and I didn't want to worry about the binding giving into that weight.You need this book. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny
This book is a must-have for teachers and librarians, but most importantly, for parents who want a culturally literate child.As a teacher (grades 4th - 12th), I recommend the Core Knowledge Series by the same author as the framework for home schooling.Please don't wait, parents!Get this book and start collecting these resources!You can't rely on any school to teach your child all they should know.If you are reading this, you are a conscientious parent.Your child's school may well be focused on teaching basic life skills such as manners and self esteem, because not all parents are conscientious.After all, parents are ultimately responsible for their child's education.Even if you aren't home schooling, get this to help you supplement your child's education.Get the "What your K/1st/2nd...6th grader Needs to Know" books, too.You will be amazed at how much these books enrich your child's education, and ultimately their life.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very helpful book
This book is very nice to have if you homeschool.It is very easy to use and a great resource. It is broken into curriculum areas including Visual Arts, which has really helped since I did not know much about the subject.

3-0 out of 5 stars Books to Build On
This is a useful book but one I don't believe you need to spend your money on as it is available at the library for free - and it's not a book you need to refer to daily or even weekly.Check it from the library, make yourself a list of what books it lists that you need from that, and return it. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Dumbledore - The CEO of Hogwarts!
I bought this book in preparation for LUMOS 2006, because Tom Morris was one of the keynote speakers. The book is great - Tom is obviously a true Harry Potter fan. The book addresses the wisdom of the Harry Potter magical world and it's attributes within business leadership. I attended his presentation at Lumos and found out that he is a great speaker too! Tom does a lot of business speaking to huge companies and really knows how to hold an audience. Also, I was lucky enough to catch Tom in the hall and got his autograph inside the book! Accio Wisdom!
5-0 out of 5 stars Leadership Wisdom from the Wise and Intuitive Perspective of Tom Morris
"Leadership Wisdom from the World of the Wizards" should read "Leadership Wisdom from the Wise and Intuitive Perspective of Tom Morris" as, in many ways it's one and the same.
5-0 out of 5 stars My View
The Title, If Harry Potter Ran General Electric instantly grabbed my attention. Being a Harry Potter-aholic myself, the interest was immediate. Tom Morris used this "hook" to set up his new book that presents the practicality of ancient wisdom in the lives and practices of business and professional leaders. This book is an example of a unique understanding that Tom Morris has developed in the field during his 15 years of teaching philosophy at the University of Notre Dame.

The book was in excellent condition and it came promptly. This was my first time ordering online and it will not be my last.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's a keeper.

Not only can you perform searches to find books to match different topics, you can organize and enter information about your existing library, whether or not all of your titles are included in the database.You can add your own comments to the information stored for each title.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A great resource
This thick volume would make a perfect companion (or predecessor) to the "Literature Lover's Book of Lists" in the same series (see my review).Though probably intended for teachers and librarians, it will be found equally useful by homeschoolers and other parent/guardian figures searching for enlightenment regarding the "best" books in the vast field of kidlit old and new.Divided into three broad groups (pre-K through Gr. 1, Grs. 2-3, and Grs. 4-6), it breaks its lists down into sensible categories like "classics," author and publisher series, sf and fantasy, books "to teach math/science/social studies," and so forth, then divides many of these lists in turn into brief sublists (2:13, "Multicultural Books," for instance, includes titles for "Across Cultures," "African-American," "Alternative Lifestyles," "Amish," "Appalachian," "Asian," "Hispanic," "Jewish," "Native American," and "Quaker").Though annotations are given only for the series books, with a brief description of the series focus, the lists alone (which you can easily scan and print off to take to the library or bookstore with you) are a treasure trove for the parent bewildered by the huge variety of books available.Fiction and nonfiction are included, and many great perennials (like "Lassie Come-Home," "Black Beauty," "Tom Sawyer," "Peter Pan," etc.) have found their way into the book along with newer emergents.An index would have been useful, but even without one, this is a volume no parent should fail to consult. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Okay but lacking real depth
I chose this book for a children's literature class that I lead based mostly on cost.The other recommended texts in this area are very expensive and I wanted my students to be able to purchase quality trade books as well.I need to supplement the reading a great deal because of the cursory nature of the chapters regarding various genres.For the money, it's a fine text but be aware that it leaves out a great deal that that other books - such as Norton's Through the Eyes of a Child from the same publisher - cover in greater depth.

4-0 out of 5 stars Hands-On Children's Literature
Marjorie Hancock introduces teachers to some of the best titles in Children's Literature. Going beyond mere introductions, she suggests methods for implementing various response methods and for integrating Children's Literature into the classroom.She has taken the effort toinclude titles for both elementary and middle school classrooms in onevolume, so that teachers are able to become acquainted with a wide varietyof genres as well as titles. An especially impressive section is herchapter on poetry, where she not only defines the various forms, butprovides examples of each style. This is a concise volume, andit doeslack the pictures that many other texts have. The references to children'sliterature websites, and authors' homepages are a valuable resource tooland help integrate modern technology with the printed page -- a skill thatis sorely needed as we enter the new millenium. ...
