  • A little gem!

    Reviewed by Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite Teaching young people to enjoy reading is a difficult task, especially in this era where there are many distractions to lure them away from a good book, a good story, a good poem, or a good play. While English teachers strive to instill in young minds the importance of literature in all its forms, the task may at times be insurmountable. Reading for enjoyment, a learned adventure in appreciation of the written word, is a gift on its own, but reading with a comprehension of all that the written words are meant to convey is something that needs to be nurtured by those who have studied literature for years. For example, “Reading short stories furnishes the mind with knowledge, but it takes a good reader to find meaning from the text.” Educators of fine literature, Andrea L. Ambler and Jerald E. Klocek, have put together an excellent resource guide to help English teachers everywhere with ideas, directions, and means to encourage the young mind to appreciate and enjoy fine writing. Literature – the Book, the Place and the Pen: A Teaching Resource Book is an excellent, well-organized guide to teaching young people the importance of literature in all its forms - short stories, novels, non-fiction, drama, and poetry - and to encourage them to love reading. It includes step-by-step resources, writing tasks, reading and writing activities, suggested reading lists, informative background on multiple genres as well as assignments to open the minds of young readers to the power of the written word. This little guide book is filled with valuable resources for all grade levels.

    Thanks for your feedback!
