10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Z Hayes HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on August 25, 2009
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I actually have an older edition of this title, but it is still quite current and was indispensable during my teaching years [I taught both middle school and high school]. This is a great resource not just for librarians, but also for teachers and parents. Teachers can use this reference tool to create reading lists based on curricular needs and also arrange the lists thematically. Parents will find this a handy guide to recommended titles by subject matter.

This reference guide is arranged thematically, i.e.
Literary Forms [fiction, plays, poetry, folklore and fairy tales, mythology, humor and satire, speeches, essays and general literary works]
Literary History and Criticism
Language and Communication
Biography, Memoirs, Etc.
The Arts and Entertainment
History and Geography
Philosophy and Religion
Society and the Individual
Guidance and Personal Development
Physical and Applied Sciences
Recreation and Sports

There is also an author index, title index, and subject/grade level index at the end of the book. Highly recommended reference guide for Grades 9-12.
