Summary

Based on the classic text originally authored by Charlotte Huck, this new brief text provides essential information for designing literature programs that will capture the attention of pre-K-to-8 students and foster a lifelong love of reading. Expertly designed in a vibrant, full-color format, this streamlined text not only serves as a valuable resource by providing the most current reference lists and examples from which to select texts from all genres, but it also emphasizes the critical skills needed to search for and select literature--researching, evaluating, and implementing quality books in the pre-K-to-8 classroom--to give readers the tools they need to evaluate books, create curriculum, and share the love of literature. It includes unique features that spur critical thinking and direct application in the classroom and curriculum.
