Reaching reluctant young readers by Rob Reid( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reaching Reluctant Young Readers features 150 middle-grade books. Each profiled title has the potential to hook the reluctant reader and lure them to read the entire book. To specifically encourage elementary and middle-school-age reluctant children to read, there is first a pitch to get the reader's attention. That is followed by a short reading passage to "set the hook" and encourage the young person to read the rest of the book on their own. Further, the book contains several hundred additional recommended titles. The books selected for this collection were chosen following the criteria of reluctant reader books created by the Quick Picks committee sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association. While these guidelines were designed for young adult books, they also work well for middle-grade books. -- Provided by publisher

Biographies to read aloud with kids : from Alvin Ailey to Zishe the Strongman by Rob Reid( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many biographies written and illustrated for young people today are well researched, lively, and present the facts in creative styles and formats. The children's publishing industry is a leader in showcasing a diverse array of people to read about, many of them absent from school textbooks, but all playing important roles throughout history. In Biographies to Read Aloud with Kids, Rob Reid, a recognized expert in children's books, introduces parents, caregivers, and educators to 200 of the best biographies to share with young people ages 4 to 14. The stories of real people, many of whom who overcome hardships and barriers in their lives, can inspire and engross young readers. Some of the lesser-known biographies, such as Robert Smalls, Maggie Gee, and Temple Grandin, are some of the most captivating. Biographies about well-known people often share little-known anecdotes about them, such as Dr. Seuss being voted "least likely to succeed" in college, or that George Washington was so unsure about his leadership abilities when given command of the American Continental Army that he had to read books on military strategies. These stories are among those told in the riveting biographies Reid presents in Biographies to Read Aloud with Kids. Annotations give a feel for the writing style of the author, and selections include picture books, graphic novels, chapter books, and bilingual titles and strongly represent women and people of a diverse array of backgrounds, ethnicities, and color. Reid also interviews with two biographers and a publisher who specialize in multicultural literature for young people about how they choose their subjects and current and future trends in the field."--
Avondale and Chicago's Polish Village by Jacob Kaplan( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Home to Chicago's Polish Village, impressive examples of sacred and industrial architecture, and the legendary Olson Waterfall, Avondale is often tagged as "the neighborhood that built Chicago." Images of America: Avondale and Chicago's Polish Village sheds light on the little known history of the community, including its fascinating industrial past. From its beginnings as a sleepy subdivision started by a Michigan senator, it became a cultural mecca for Chicago's Polish community, playing a crucial role in Poland's struggles for independence. Other people also called Avondale home, such as Scottish proprietors, African American freedmen, Irish activists, Swedish shopkeepers, German tradesmen, Jewish merchants, Filipino laborers, and Italian entrepreneurs; a diversity further enriched as many from the former Soviet Bloc and Latin America settled here. As in other Chicago neighborhoods, change is the one constant, as the arts have brought a renaissance to this working-class corner of the city
