Suggestions To Help Engage Young Adolescents with Books.
Middle Grades Reading Network, Evansville, IN.
Accompanying a collection of 85 books for teenagers donated to local service organizations in Indiana, or donated in the name of such an organization to local libraries, this pamphlet offers suggestions to help the organizations engage adolescents with books and lists the paperback books given to the organizations. Suggestions in the pamphlet include: promoting reading with posters; using older children to encourage younger children to read; reading aloud to others; giving book talks; holding "read-ins"; and providing a storyteller. A "Reading Bill of Rights" concludes the pamphlet. The list of books is divided into sections of adventure/fantasy, biography, mystery/horror/science fiction, realistic fiction, short stories, and sports. (RS)
