Editorial description(s):

From School Library Journal

The Internet is a treasure trove of curriculum connections if one knows where to look, and this book is a brilliant time-saver. Moran provides Web sites and activities related to 38 books for grades four to eight and includes titles such as Karen Cushman's Catherine, Called Birdy, Jeff Brown's Flat Stanley, E. B. White's Charlotte's Web, and the Colliers' My Brother Sam Is Dead. The activities tie the literature into subjects across the curriculum including math, science, social studies, and music. Four introductory chapters focus on general use of the Internet including a chapter on "Tips for Kids." An excel- lent tool for promoting collaboration between librarians and teachers.-Yapha Nussbaum Mason, Brentwood Lower School, Los Angeles

Reader review(s):

Fantastic and Fascinating Help for teachers, March 25, 2000
This is the book for all teachers who love literature and desire to utilize internet resources with their children, but don't have the time to research hundreds of sites on their own. Karen A. Moran has done a thorough job of finding appropriate sites that relate to 38 different children's books. To name a few, the book includes Charlotte's Web, Night of the Twisters, Hatchet, Cricket in Times Square, Indian in the cupboard, Ribsey, Summer of my German Soldier, and The Watson's go to Burmingham - 1963. For each title, the author lists an average of five different web sites that contain a curriculum connection to the book. The activity suggestions range in grade level ability and are both fresh and creative! Included also are other suggested resources, and professional materials.

A must have for any elementary teacher working with books and computers!
