Pub. Date:
The invaluable grade-by-grade guide (kindergarten--sixth) is designed to help parents and teachers select some of the best books for children. Books to Build On recommends: * for kindergartners, lively collections of poetry and stories, such as The Children's Aesop, and imaginative alphabet books such as Bill Martin, Jr.'s Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and Lucy Micklewait's I Spy: An Alphabet in Art * for first graders, fine books on the fine arts, such as Ann Hayes's Meet the Orchestra , the hands-on guide My First Music Book, and the thought-provoking Come Look with Me series of art books for children * for second graders, books that open doors to world cultures and history, such as Leonard Everett Fisher's The Great Wall of China and Marcia Willaims's humorous Greek Myths for Young Children * for third graders, books that bring to life the wonders of ancient Rome, such as Living in Ancient Rome , and fascinating books about astronomy, such as Seymour Simon's Our Solar System * for fourth graders, engaging books on history, including Jean Fritz's Shh! We're Writing the Constitution, and many books on Africa, including the stunningly illustrated story of Sundiata: Lion King of Mali * for fifth graders, a version of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream that retains much of the original language but condenses the play for reading or performance by young students, and Michael McCurdy's Escape from Slavery: The Boyhood of Frederick Douglass * for sixth graders, an eloquent retelling of the Iliad and the Odyssey, and the well-written American history series, A History of US . . . and many, many more!
