A fellow graduate student in my SLIS J757 class at USC shared this link in a message to the listserv today.
Although this is the first issue I have seen, Random House has just published the third annual issue. I have downloaded the 112 page publication and quickly browsed through it. Of course, since it is published by Random House, you will find their products being pushed, but the magazine has some terrific articles making this worthwhile reading for teachers and library media specialists.
The focus of this issue is on reluctant readers. Articles include:
“Fantasy: Why in the World Do Kids Read This Stuff?” an article by Terry Brooks
One of the joys of being a library media specialist for me is connecting a reader with the right book and having them come back and request more “just like that one!”
