Synopsis

Jweid & Rizzo believe much can be accomplished through judicious reading, and have brought together 50 titles that meet this criterion. Each entry is accompanied by a lengthy annotation, useful background information (such as awards won and author information), and plenty of discussion questions and project ideas. In keeping with the authors' commitment to character building, selected titles emphasize cultivating ethics, assuming personal responsibility, and practicing moral judgment. It will assist school librarians, classroom teachers, and parents in selecting novels and guiding students toward international knowledge and understanding.
