The result of a summer reading group formed by members of the Newark (Ohio) Organization of Teachers of English to share book titles and ideas for use in the English classroom, this first annual compilation presents reviews of good reading materials for kindergarten through grade nine. Following an introduction and a list of contributors, the volume presents the reviews, divided into the following categories: (1) realistic fiction, (2) fantasy/folk tales, (3) historical fiction, (4) nonfiction, (5) poetry, and (6) picture books. Each of the guide's entries contains publication information, a summary, discussion questions/extension activities, related titles and themes, and the contributor's critical opinion. The guide concludes with author and subject indexes. (HTH)
