Despite the recent call for systematic, intensive phonics instruction, phonemic awareness, and decodeable texts, many educators continue to bring students and books together in transforming ways. Talking About Books is being reissued because it is clear that a focus on dialogue about books within a literate community remains important to teachers.

Classroom teachers and teacher educators tell why they chose literature as a focus for creating literate communities, how they approach literature through read-aloud and small-group discussions, and how they view curricular decisions involved in supporting talk about books. Authors discuss situations in classrooms in urban, suburban, and rural areas. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
