Product Overview

Parents, teachers, and librarians are often puzzled by the seemingly endless choices for reading material for young people. What's good, what's trash, what's going to hold their interest? Nancy Pearl, America's favorite librarian, has read widely in all the genres and happily points the way in "Book Crush." Divided into three sections -- Easy Books, Middle-Grade Readers, and Young Adult -- "Book Crush" makes wonderful reading connections by theme, setting, voice, and ideas. For horse lovers, Pearl recalls the classics ("Black Beauty, Misty of Chincoteague"), but in a creative twist connects "Mr. Revere and I" to the list. For middle-grade readers, she explores updated retellings of Greek myths and the best coming-of-age stories. Young adult readers get to know chick lit and much more. For those adults who feel stuck in a rut with Caldecott and Newberry winners and the ubiquitous "Harry Potters," this fun, informed book offers new ways to stimulate young readers.
