Introducing Books: A Guide for the Middle Grades.
Gillespie, John; Lembo, Diana
This volume, a companion to "Juniorplots," (see CS 200013) is designed to help teachers and librarians who are giving reading guidance and book talks to children between the ages of nine and fourteen. The 88 titles have been grouped according to the following developmental goals of childhood: (1) getting along in the family; (2) making friends; (3) developing values; (4) understanding physical problems; (5) forming a world view; (6) respecting living creatures; (7) evaluating contemporary problems; (8) identifying adult roles; (9) learning to think abstractly; (10) appreciating books; and (11) reading for fun. Under each of these headings, various reading levels and areas of interest and equal coverage for boys and girls are represented. The material on each book includes a plot analysis, a discussion of thematic material, approaches for book talks, and suggestions for books and other media that are thematically related to the book.
