    You don't have to have a degree in literature to discuss books with your child. Lawrence and Nancy Goldstone do such a wonderful job of laying out a plan that anyone can do it. This book is written to be a guide to begin a parent-child book club. It would also be a good discussion guide to use with your own children. The reading in this book is recommended for children in grades 2nd through 5th.

    The authors teach readers how to be "book detectives" and find the story hidden within the story. Stories are written in layers, and readers need to peel them away by determining which characters fit the role of protagonist and antagonist, the importance of setting, identifying the climax, and point of view. They even spend some time looking for the deeper meaning within poetry. Using this approach will allow readers to unlock the adventure in every story.

    A list of the books used by the authors in their reading groups is included. In second grade they include Mr. Popper's Penguins, Babe: The Gallant Pig, Charlotte's Web, Frindle, and various poems. Third grade includes Half Magic, The Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, The Phantom Tollbooth, The Enormous Egg, and Bull Run. In fourth grade they read The View from Saturday, White Lilacs, The Giver, Animal Farm, and The Call of the Wild. The fifth grade list includes A Wrinkle in Time, Macario, Lost Horizon, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and The Time Machine. Along with the books used in their group they include some alternative selections. You are taken through some of the books step-by-step to illustrate how you can have discussions with your children in the manner suggested by the authors.

    I was surprised at what an easy-read this is. I really enjoyed the book summaries, insightful discussions, and the humorous way some of the information is presented. This is a wonderful resource for those who want to help kids experience literature rather than just speed through books. 206 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

    Buck enjoys life as the pampered family dog of Judge Miller. When Manuel, the gardener's helper, secretly steals Buck to be sold, the civilized lifestyle that Buck grew up under no longer exists. It is the height of the Klondike gold rush, and dogs like Buck are in high demand as sled dogs. In a time and place when survival is an everyday battle, Buck must adapt to a lifestyle where primal instincts are the key to survival. The Signet Classic Edition not only includes the unabridged novel with an introduction by Alex Kershaw, but presents several of London's other works including "Diable," "An Odyssey of the North," "To the Man on Trail," "To Build a Fire," and "Love of Life." This edition has 133 pgs, pb. ~ Enh

    The Call of the Wild and White Fang are world famous animal stories. Set in Alaska during the Klondike Gold Rush of the late 1890's, The Call of the Wild is about Buck, the magnificent cross-bred offspring of a St. Bernard and a Scottish Collie. Stolen from his pampered life on a Californian estate and shipped to the Klondike to work as a sledge dog, he triumphs over his circumstances and becomes the leader of a wolf pack. The story records the "decivilization" of Buck as he answers "the call of the wild," an inherent memory of primeval origins to which he instinctively responds. In contrast, White Fang relates the tale of a wolf born and bred in the wild yet civilized by the master he comes to trust and love. The deeper resonance of these stories derives from the author's use of the myth of the hero who survives by strength and courage. A Wordsworth Classic.

    A lovely collection of stories from many well-loved children's books such as Peter Pan, Call of the Wild, and Black Beauty as well as stand-alone stories. Arranged as 10-minute readings (for busy parents) that are likely to serve as salted oats to encourage children to read the entire book. Beautiful illustrations and artwork, many from the original books, are interspersed throughout the stories. 230 pgs. hb (with dust cover) ~ Janice

    This famous sea story, authored by Jack London, opens with a disastrous shipwreck. Humphrey Van Weyden, a gentleman aboard one of the two colliding ships, is swept overboard and picked up by Wolf Larsen, the overbearing captain of the seal-hunting vessel Ghost. Refusing to take him ashore, Larsen instead makes "Hump" a cabin boy, where he is forced to work hard for the first time in his life in order to survive. Life aboard the vessel under the highly intelligent but ruthless Captain Wolf is told from the perspective of Van Weyden as he struggles to survive through the dangers of working for the captain, storms, and mutiny, falls in love with another castaway, and encounters other adventures at sea.
