About the Author:
Rob Reid is the very popular author of numerous books on children’s programming for ALA Editions. He has also written resource books for Upstart Books, as well as two picture books. In addition, he writes regular columns on programming and children’s literature for LibrarySparks and Book Links magazines. He teaches courses on children’s and adolescent literature and a variety of library topics at the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire. He conducts workshops throughout North America on ways to make literature come alive for children.

“Recommended for all school library media specialists in a K-12 setting and all public children or young adult librarians who are trying to get their students or their patrons to read more.”

“Many librarians rely on the collective knowledge of their peers to create bibliographies, make recommendations, and share books with readers, and a resource such as this makes that job a bit easier.”
--School Library Journal

"This is a very handy package of read-aloud suggestions for teachers, librarians and parents; it also provides an opportunity for readers to quite quickly become familiar with a selection of titles published in recent years, so it would be useful in readers’ advisory work for children and young adults, and perhaps also in library selection/acquisition."
--The Australian Library Journal
