Book News Annotation:

At a time when most teachers are focusing on skills, Barone (literacy, U. of Nevada, Reno) presents a guide for teachers in K-6 classrooms to help children develop a love of reading using picturebooks, fiction, nonfiction, and nontraditional texts like graphic and postmodern books. She describes the history and issues related to children's literature, the importance of independent reading and reading aloud, narrative genres and examples, informational texts, the writing and visual qualities of books, students views of reading, and learning about illustrators and authors by grouping books.
