Now in its fourth edition, this classic textbook offers theory and practice for creating and implementing holistic, literature-based approaches to the teaching of reading. The author uses a proven research base and examples from actual classroom practices to present teachers with numerous practical suggestions for incorporating these approaches into existing literacy programs, including information on small-group discussion techniques, questioning, ways of eliciting response, record-keeping, evaluation, book selection, and appropriate methods of presentation. This bestselling text has helped countless numbers of teachers, language arts supervisors, and curriculum specialists to create effective reading programs that are fun and inspiring for both the student and the educator.

The completely updated Fourth Edition features:

  • A new chapter discussing the significance of contemporary literary theories for classroom practice.
  • An expanded list of children’s authors that includes Russell Hoban’s classic, The Mouse and His Child plus many recently published books, such as Deborah Ellis’s Parvana’s Journey, Avis Harley’s Fly with Poetry: An ABC of Poetry, and Ben Mikaelsen’s Red Midnight.
  • A new section on storytelling, demonstrating how to “talk” a story so that children hang on every word.
  • An expanded poetry section, showing teachers how to get started teaching poetry in their classroom.
  • Advice on assessments and suggestions for facilitating writing.
  • Ideas for guiding the reading experience, with particular attention to intertextuality and inquiry.

Praise for the Third Edition!

“May every teacher of literature, from pre-school through graduate school, read this book and live and teach accordingly.”

The CLA Bulletin (now the Journal of Children’s Literature)

“Sloan reminds us that ‘Literacy begins in hearts, not heads.’... She describes concrete examples (of instructional strategies) for primary, upper elementary, and middle school grades.”
