MEDIA REVIEWS
"As she did in Rhymes and Reasons: Librarians and Teachers Using Poetry to Foster Literacy, (Linworth, 2003), Heitman presents a well-organized and comprehensive look at how fairy tales can be infused into the curriculum. Focusing on collaboration between librarians and teachers, she offers a series of lessons that correlate to both the NCTE standards for the English/Language Arts as well as AASL's Information Literacy Standards. The book includes ways in which the various lessons can be adapted for special and English-language learners, as well as numerous templates for writing, speaking, and listening activities. While some experienced librarians will recognize many tried-and-true activities, there is also a great deal of fresh material, and newer teachers/librarians will appreciate the wealth of information. This excellent resource deserves a place in most professional collections." - School Library Journal
"This guide is a tremendous resource to elementary school librarians, Language Arts teachers, and parents for teaching applied literary concepts like sequencing of events, conflict, cause & effect, reading comprehension, critical thinking, and prediction. The author sensibly presumes to teach Language Arts skills by using eight familiar fairy tales, with suggestions for using traditional versions and modern retellings with sufficiently annotated lists of in-print citations. Quite helpful, reproducible worksheets, rubrics, and planning guides are included in a more-than-half-the-book selection of lesson plans, which includes extension activities and assessment suggestions, under the organized, and remarkably inclusive, list of lesson skill objectives, including reading, story elements, writing, drama, and reading aloud. Each skill addressed is plotted in a matrix that coordinates and indexes the lessons, and each lesson is built upon national standards and designed for ease of collaboration between the school librarian and the Language Arts teacher. This lesson plan anthology is a truly desirable springboard between classic literary themes, approved standards, the school library, and engaging classroom experiences. I have never seen another guide like this one, to my knowledge it is one of a kind. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
