Here's an exciting new edition of a work that helps parents and educators encourage reading skills in children ages 4-7.

Profiling 2,500 first readers published since 1990 that feature lively interaction between text and illustration, this all-new second edition of Beyond Picture Books presents themes that are sure to interest young readers. Here's everything from classic fables and stories of family life in foreign lands to titles that address emotions, self-esteem, friendship - even magic.

Every information-packed entry offers a brief plot synopsis; title, author, and illustrator information; comments about the illustrations; and - most important of all - a critical evaluation enabling you to make informed buying decisions.

A special list of 200 outstanding first readers makes collection development easy. Five helpful indexes - subject, title, illustrator, series, and reading level - round out the book's many convenient features.
