This guide provides a single-source, comprehensive listing of a fascinating and helpful group of books and a multitude of ideas about how to use them in the classroom. The authors have carefully selected quality fiction and nonfiction that focus on universal themes, appeal to all ages, treat important issues, and are accessible to multiple learning styles.
