More Teachers' Favorite Books for Kids: Teachers' Choices 1994-1996.
International Reading Association, Newark, DE.
Including books that might not be discovered or fully appreciated by children without introduction by a knowledgeable adult, this guide presents annotations of more than 80 trade books appropriate for children and adolescents, complete with teachers' suggestions for curriculum use. Entries in the guide are grouped into primary (K-2), intermediate (grades 3-5), and advanced (grades 6-8). Culled from lists compiled from 1994 to 1996, the trade books listed here offer many opportunities for reading aloud, discussion, and the stimulation of writing across the curriculum areas of language arts, social studies, math, art, drama, and music. The books included in the guide were chosen because teachers believe they reflect high literary quality in style, content, structure, beauty of language, and presentation. (RS)
