The Fiction Gateway

Enriching the Curriculum with Children's Literature

By Suzanne Eberlé, Noelle S. Williamson

What's a good book for me to read next? In this brand new guide, two experienced school librarians set out to answer that question by providing a selection of books - for librarians, teachers, and parents - from which to choose the most appropriate book for a child to read. The Fiction Gateway is an essential resource that supports individual, group, and social reading programs. The book provides an instant guide to matching children's interests with suitable reading material. Each entry contains a brief synopsis of the plot, publisher details, theme correlations, concepts, appropriate reading level, questions for discussion, an excerpt of the book, and a range of post-reading activities. The Fiction Gateway contains a variety of entries, including many familiar children's literature titles, such as: Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret . Ark in the Park . The Bamboo Flute . Bridge to Terabithia . Buzzard Breath and Brains . Catastrophe Cat . Charlotte's Web . Deep Water . Don't Call Me Ishmael . The Gizmo . Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone . Hating Alison Ashley . The Incredible Journey . The Invention of Hugo Cabret . Island of the Blue Dolphins . The Jungle Book . The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe . The Little Prince . Macbeth and Son . The Mostly True Story of Matthew and Trim . My Side of the Mountain . Pigs Do Fly (It's True!) . The Quicksand Pony . Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes . Secrets of Eromanga . Spaghetti Legs . The Twenty-seventh Annual African Hippopotamus Race . When the Tripods Came . and many more.
