Industry Reviews

The annotated bibliography covers K - 12 and includes hundreds of titles. Such a bibliography may not be indexed well in the OPAC, so this bibliography becomes of value when we are searching for resources to promote the idea of creativity that is encouraged in every state curriculum with which we are familiar. Bottom line: Highly recommended. * Teacher Librarian *
This useful resource gathers books that should appeal to those reluctant readers that young adult librarians struggle to reach, and it will pique the interest of anyone with an ounce of curiosity. * VOYA *
