MEDIA REVIEWS
"This text should be required reading for all preservice and inservice elementary teachers who want to use nonfiction trade books effectively in their teaching. Moss's explanations, examples, and classroom-tested strategies help teachers understand how to select and use nonfiction texts throughout their curriculum. The classroom descriptions, student work samples, and practical suggestions make this book a valuable resource that will be useful for professional development programs, children's literature courses, and content area reading courses."--Laurie Elish-Piper, PhD, Department of Literacy Education, Northern Illinois University

"While the past decade has seen an explosion in the availability of nonfiction trade books for the elementary grades, teachers' knowledge and use of these important resources has lagged behind. This book takes a significant leap forward in closing the gap between fiction and nonfiction in teachers' knowledge and classroom usage. Moss, one of the country's leading scholars in this area, provides teachers, teacher educators, and literacy educators with an in-depth, comprehensive treatment of how to use nonfiction to improve students' achievement and motivation. The many teaching suggestions provided are clearly detailed, user-friendly, classroom proven, and applicable in nearly any content area. This book is a 'must' for any teacher or teacher educator interested in making nonfiction trade books an integral part of the elementary school curriculum."--Timothy Rasinski, PhD, Department of Teaching, Leadership, and Curriculum Studies, Kent State University

"A real gold mine! This book goes beyond the recommendations for teaching nonfiction literature found in most texts. Moss addresses the environmental and instructional factors necessary for helping students learn to read, write, and love the literature of fact in constructive, inquiry-oriented classrooms. Readers will appreciate the abundance of practical classroom activities presented within the context of a rich theoretical framework and a current research base--all written in an engaging conversational style. Another bonus is found in the many citations of notable, current nonfiction titles. This book will serve as an excellent text for nonfiction children's literature courses in university settings, and as a wonderful resource for elementary teachers."--Terrell A. Young, EdD, Department of Teaching and Learning, Washington State University
