Sharing stories is still a powerful experience in the digital age. Children's literature expert Reid knows, as he shares literature with youngsters and librarians around the country. Reid's Read-Alouds: Selections for Children and Teens (2009) dealt with twenty-first-century works. Volume 2 covers 1950 to 1999, recovering modern-day classics from C. S. Lewis' first Narnia Chronicles volume to the first Lemony Snicket book. Reid includes about 200 titles that are still in print (which results in mainly 1990s books). He aims for a balance of gender, age level (though the majority best fit upper elementary), genre, and author (no more than two by a single author). He also tries to avoid stereotypes, rough language, and personal private matters (such as hygiene). Entries are arranged in author order, and each includes a brief plot summary and one or tw. 10 Minute Selections. which give a quick context for the section to be read. The book winds up with three useful lists. Titles by Decade and Year. Books by Subject. an. Grade-Level Recommendations. (Most of the high-school titles could work for eighth-graders, and the K-2 titles usually work better for third grade on up.) Reid states that all selections ar. kid-tested. so users of this book can feel comfortable grabbing a title to read aloud for ASAP programming.--Farmer, Lesle. Copyright 2010 Booklist

The very successful first edition of Reid's Read-Alouds (ALA, 2009) profiled children's and young adult books published between the years 2000 and 2008. This companion volume showcases 200 strong titles that were published from 1950 to 1999. Reid offers a variety of genres and age levels, and a good balance between male and female protagonists. The titles were still in print when selected. Equally important was the desire to avoid racial stereotypes, excessive swearing, sexual incidents, or characters dealing with personal private matters. That's not to say that some of the selections don't include some strong language. The focus is on books that are great to read to groups of young people. Each entry includes a brief plot summary, suggested grade level, and Reid's signature "10 Minute Selections," which are engaging episodes from the books that can be read in one sitting. These alone make the book a valuable resource. The annotations are organized by author; three helpful lists divide titles by decade and year, subject, and grade level. There's an occasional book that may be hard to find, but most of them should be in current collections. Great for those times when a class visit shows up and you need to do programming on the fly.-Renee McGrath, Nassau Library System, Uniondale, NY (c) Copyright 2011.
