MEDIA REVIEWS
...a must read for anyone working with urban students, those who speak English as a second language, or members of minority populations. * Knowledge Quest *
Teachers of English as an additional language to children and adults will find this book of interest. The papers are well referenced and index is provided. * Nlt *
A good source of information for educators and librarians who provide services to this often-neglected population in our schools and communities. It will help readers develop not only a fair understanding of the issue, but more importantly the useful strategies in promoting literacy among linguistic minorities. * Library Link *
In addressing the needs of non-native English speakers/readers, Constantino's book fills a gap in the literature. There are some excellent summaries of research to date as well as lengthy bibliographies. This book is recommended for academic libraries with library schools, college libraries that support ESL programs and, perhaps most importantly, for school and public librarians. * Counterpoise, Vol. 10, No. 4 (Fall 2006) *
This is an informative book for librarians...this book would benefit the English as a Second Language teacher in terms of explaining the importance of free reading in teaching English. It is also beneficial to the school or public librarian facing the challenge of serving minority language populations. * VOYA *
