Children will benefit, not only as future readers and writers but also as future citizens, if the models of classroom literacy development set forth in this book are followed.

—Richard L. Allington, from the Foreword

Help your students unlock their love of reading by introducing them to a range of high-quality children's literature. This fourth edition has 14 all-new chapters that offer classroom-proven strategies and tips from educators and children's book authors.

  • Explore genres such as poetry, biographies, nonfiction, and series books
  • Investigate images and how to read them, specifically in picture books and graphic novels
  • Motivate students by sharing books with global appeal and themes to attract uninspired readers
  • Create an atmosphere that fosters a love of reading and writing
  • Engage with resources in the field to expand your own knowledge and practices

Complete with children's literature author and title indexes, this edition will show you how, why, and what types of children's literature to use in the classroom. In a world of basal readers, inspire your K–5 students to embrace varied texts to make connections to their world and beyond.
