"The researchers in part 1 give a plethora of information on book sharing in families. Part 2 shows the role that storybook reading plays in the classroom; and part 3 traces storybook reading as a cultural practice. Part 4 gives a critical analysis on where the research on book sharing is leading us....This volume provides well-documented references at the end of each chapter as well as resources for practitioners to show that reading books to children should be part of a total instructional program....Recommended."

"The topic is an important one which needs to be revisited....This book will be of value as a resource to professors and to students in graduate programs....It has the potential to make a significant contribution to our knowledge base on reading books to children."
