Teachers will find that they can observe students responses to new challenges in a setting outside the classroom, and librarians will gain a deeper understanding of children that will help them plan literature programs and individualize their response to each child. Authors Moss, a school librarian and literature teacher, and Fenster, a teacher of a combined K-1 classroom, developed a yearlong literary/literacy program that exposed first graders to a wide range of literary selections in weekly read-aloud sessions in the school library. The dialogue that emerged as the core of the childrens literary experiences enabled them to confidently explore unfamiliar territory in the world of literature. Youll witness firsthand the culmination of the program in The Magic Library, a story that the students wrote collaboratively based on what they had discovered in the literary/literacy units.
