  • Reviews

You can use the emotional power of books to help young readers develop strength, happiness, and confidence. Author Sandra Kitain has identified many of the best books that deal with the tough topics kids face in today’s world, including divorce, death, moving, sibling rivalry, fire, substance abuse, friendship, multiculturalism, separation anxiety, and more. Each entry includes:

• A booktalk to engage young readers
• An activity to help them understand and personalize the topic
• Discussion questions to aid in the emotional development of elementary school readers

Kitain also encourages involvement withdramatic arts, movement, and music to build student confidence and a lifelong love of reading. Shelf Esteem fills two critical library needs. It’s a valuable reader’s advisory resource to help you connect children with the right books at the right times. It’s also a powerful resource for collection development and programming for both public and school libraries.

Tough subjects like alcoholism, illness and death, and homelessness are also included ... This text is highly recommended for all librarians, teachers, caregivers, and parents of younger readers."

"In addition to its value as a programming tool, this title can be used as a collection-development resource."
