The book’s brilliance results from extensive research in genre applications, information and relevant curriculum tie-ins. There are suggestions for in-class discussions, one-on-one discussions and chart examples that reflect and relate to the understanding and discovery of meaning through story contexts. The seven chapters delineate awareness of progression in how we read, how we teach, how we share and how we learn from books in a multitude of ways. An informative and engaging introduction leads to units on teaching and discussing children’s fiction, poetry, non-fiction, graphic novels, fairy tales and picture books. A variety of tales – realistic, cumulative, pourquoi, beast and modern – are explored, along with legends and epics. The celebration of multicultural diversity and the complexity of injustices, coupled with information about censorship, add to the depth of the book. Margin notes are carefully constructed to add further insightful and delightful information. Canadian Children's Book News (Winter 2010, Vol. 33, No. 1)
