    This book provides practice for older readers to enhance their reading skills, using a variety of different texts similar to what they would come across in their daily lives. It is divided into two parts: Key Reading Skills and Reading Texts. The first part focuses on specific skills, including scanning, predicting, working out word meanings, understanding a writer's purpose, understanding complex sentences, interpreting graphs and tables, inferring, and reading critically. Each unit focuses on one of those skills, with a brief explanation on what the skill is, how to use it, and why you might need to use it. A follow-up activity provides practice in using the skill, with an example text to read, and a series of related short-answer questions to complete. In the second part, students are given a variety of texts, including excerpts from textbooks, articles, novels, web pages, film reviews and cartoons. Three groups of activities accompany every text, one to complete before reading the text, one designed to test recall, and one intended for a student's personal response to the text. All in all, the book has a very no-nonsense visual appearance, with black-and-white pages and few illustrations. If your previous reading comprehension program does not cover this age level, or you feel that your junior high student could use some additional reading skills practice, you might consider this one. 30 units (lessons) total, with answers included in the back. Reproducible for classroom or family use only. – Jess

    This book contains many old favorites as it returns us to the forgotten treasures of American children's poetry. It features beautiful drawings from the best children's book illustrations through history-including archival selections from rare and early editions. This state-of-the-art anthology revives the classic poems but also retains the atmosphere of the periods in which they were written. There are selections from early Native American's cradle songs. Then it moves on to the 1787 "Alphabet" poem from the New England Primer; to 'The Three Little Kittens"; to poems by Emily Dickinson, Carl Sandburg, Robert Frost, E.E. Cummings, Janet S. Wong and several more! This is one poetry book that will not gather dust on the shelf as the older readers will want to read it often and younger children will want their favorite poems read to them time and time again! 96 pgs. ~ Phyllis

       A delightful and extremely helpful resource! This dictionary includes words from twelve of Shakespeare’s most studied and performed plays (Henry V, Hamlet, Julius Caesar, King Lear, Much Ado About Nothing, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Merchant of Venice, Othello, Romeo and Juliet, The Tempest, and Twelfth Night).

      This resource gives much more than definitions. The word entries include: definition (as used in play), part of speech, pronunciation, warning notes (difference in modern meaning), usage notes (word usage), theatre notes (the cultural background), citation (which play and character used this word), related words, and cross references. There are illustrated segments on related topics – armor, swords/daggers, clothing, hats, animals, colors, occupations, ships, recreation, music, and cosmos (constellations and horoscope), and a map of Shakespeare’s Europe. The binding is flexible and slick/glossy with slightly over-the-page-edge extensions. 352 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    At first glance you might not expect a collection of short stories to be a cultural statement but look again! As the editor of this compilation explains "the change (in American short stories since the early nineteenth century) has been gradual from a literature that assumed a singular general, homogenous audience educated in the classics, the Christian Bible, even (possibly) in Latin and Greek, to numerous particularized audiences that may have very little in common except the English language." She further notes that the rise of the internet, online blogging, and online publication of writing has added a sort of chaos to the American literary scene. So, this collection of short stories represents both the historical short story icons but also selections from young and emerging writers and, additionally, some "retrievals" from past writers that weren't previously included. Arranged chronologically in terms of publication date, reading through these stories will provide a glimpse into the intricacies of our diverse American culture. Be aware, though, that some authors/stories might push you out of your comfort zone. 870 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
