School Library Journal Review

This resource features 19 books "that can be shared in one class session or library story time" and concludes with a complete list of the award and honor books from 1970 to 2000. A chapter is devoted to each title, and includes a story synopsis, reading level, biographies of the author and illustrator, before-and-after reading and writing activities, discussion topics, crafts projects, and an Internet activity. The projects, which include many reproducible workbook-style pages, are more appropriate for classrooms than for libraries.-Marilyn Ackerman, Brooklyn Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
