Book News Annotation:

Moss (literacy education, San Diego State U.) has been reading, writing, discussing, and teaching about non-fiction literature to hundreds of preservice and inservice teachers for some ten years. Arguing that today's children are more sophisticated, less inhibited, and have different interests than children of past years, Moss favors greater inclusion of nonfiction texts in the primary grades, to capitalize on young students' fascination with exploring facts. She offers practical suggestions for educators in selecting texts, increasing student comprehension, promoting student response through varied types of activities, and using nonfiction for content area learning. Each chapter includes an extensive annotated bibliography of nonfiction titles. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
