Keep Talking That Book: Booktalks To Promote Reading. Grades 2-12. Volume 3. Professional Growth Series.
Littlejohn, Carol
Offering over 200 ready-to-use, successful "booktalks" for librarians, teachers, and parents, this book shows how to "hook" reluctant readers onto books. The field-tested booktalks are brief "commercials" for books that give just enough information to promote reading the book, and that help match the right reader with the right book. Following an introduction, the book is in 5 parts. Part I presents a list of book awards, with background information on the awards. Part II offers an alphabetical list of tips and strategies to effectively plan and conduct booktalks. Part III provides genre and subject headings for the booktalks. Part IV presents myriad booktalks for all readers, alphabetically by the author's last name. In addition to information about the plot and characters, each booktalk presents bibliographic information, age/grade suitability, any known book awards, genre, subjects, and related books. A "Note" provides additional information about the author, book, genre, or maturity content. Part V comprises a set of useful author, title, reading level, genre, and subject indexes. (SR)
