A past-president of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) and longtime spokesperson for First Amendment issues as they relate to children and young adults, for several decades Scales has been a tireless champion for children’s reading in all its richness and diversity. This collection gathers her most popular editorials, feature articles, and author interviews from the pages of Book Links magazine. Filled with stimulating ideas for school and public librarians, this book
