Based on extensive research on the features that make children's books appealing and appropriate, this valuable teacher resource offers guidance on selecting books, strategies for specific grade levels, suggestions for extension, and tips for assessment. This teacher-friendly book is organized around the major genres -- traditional literature, picture books, nonfiction, poetry, and multicultural texts -- that will inspire young readers. Throughout the book, teachers will find suggestions for using literature to implement shared reading, reading aloud, and response strategies with emergent, developing, and independent readers.

Larry Swartz has been teaching children and teachers as a classroom teacher, a language arts resource teacher and drama consultant for more than fifteen years. A drama instructor at the Faculty of Education, University of Toronto, and for Young People's Theatre, he also shares his enthusiasm for language, drama and literature as a speaker at conferences throughout the country. Larry is co-author of a major Language Arts reading series as well as Choosing Children's Books, a useful guide to help teachers, librarians, and parents select literature for children of all ages.
