How Adults Help Children Enjoy Books

Keywords: Deaf Education Information/Books and Journals/Related professional resources

by Aidan Chambers

96 pages/paperback
ISBN: 1-57110-029-6

Concerned with the practical aspects of creating an environment that supports children as they become readers, he provides suggestions on school book fairs and displays, reading areas, author visits, and book selection. But having enabled children to become readers is only part of the issue, and he also addresses ways of keeping track of children's reading and helping them develop responses to what they read.
Concise and elegantly written, The Reading Environment will be a valuable book for preservice and inservice teachers, and its distinctive blend of reflective and active comment make it an enlightening reminder to parents, media specialists, and librarians.
