Teachers' Favorite Books for Kids: Teachers' Choices 1989-1993.
International Reading Association, Newark, DE.
Including books that might not be discovered or fully appreciated by children without introduction by a knowledgeable adult, this book presents annotations of more than 150 trade books appropriate for children and adolescents, complete with teachers' suggestions for curriculum use. Entries in the book are grouped into primary (K-2), intermediate (grades 3-5), and advanced (grades 6-8). Culled from lists compiled from 1989 to 1993, the trade books listed here offer many opportunities for reading aloud, discussion, and the stimulation of writing. The trade books included in the book were chosen because teachers believe they reflect high literary quality in style, content, structure, beauty of language, and presentation. (RS)
