Good Reading for Poor Readers. Revised Edition.
Spache, George D.
This book helps to alleviate the problem of finding specific books for each child by taking into consideration the child's reading abilities, interests, and personal problems. The many factors which influence children's reactions to books are spelled out as well as the effect of physical makeup and format upon children's choices. The nature of the psychological process of the interaction of a child and a story is clarified. The values of the approach to estimating difficulty of books by readability formulas are reviewed. Lists of trade books, textbooks, and other materials, compiled from experience with reluctant readers rather than opinion, are included. The Spache Readability Formula and information about its use are appended. (Author/NH)
