Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Developed in response to the literacy research that led to the federal initiative known as the America Reads Challenge, this volume presents just about everything anyone needs to begin a reading tutorial program. Originated in Charlottesville, VA, Book Buddies was "the first large-scale model" to mobilize volunteers as part of a collaborative effort using public school, university, and community expertise, and is intended to be replicated by other school-based programs. A strong rationale for the use of volunteers, detailed duties for a volunteer coordinator, and specific training to be used with volunteers are included. Assessment tools and organizational tips for tutors together with reproducible materials to use with students are also provided. The approach is reasonable, suggesting that, in addition to phonics practice, tutors use both series (those designed with limited vocabulary for beginning readers) and other trade books. The fairly broad list of titles includes reading levels (according to "reading recovery" teachers). This very practical guide will find its audience among those who are working with emergent readers in any situation.-Maria B. Salvadore, District of Columbia Public Library

Review

"Based on sound principles of reading instruction and learning, Book Buddies helps even non-experts tutor children well. The manual is easy to read and systematically laid out. Especially valuable is the lesson plan component, which ensures individualized instruction that is tailored to each student's particular needs. This book will be a great asset to volunteer tutoring programs." --Barbara A. Wasik, PhD, Johns Hopkins University

"This guide gives tutors and their supervisors the tools and blueprints for a successful tutoring program. The authors provide a high level of detail on a host of topics related to activities, assessments, and lesson plans, enabling tutors to successfully guide children's growth from emergent to early reading. More than simply a set of good ideas, this book is derived from a program with proven results." --Elfrieda H. Hiebert, PhD, University of Michigan

Format: Paperback
The Book Buddies Manual is a user-friendly resource for teachers and tutors of beginning readers. The black-line masters in the back of the text are a great resource when starting your own program. The lesson plans are easy to follow and have a wealth of activities to accompany each lesson. The authors must be SO talented to create such an amazing manual! It is a must-have for all reading teachers!

I used this book in S. Korea (in an English speaking school) for an afterschool tutoring program. It worked great! I also found it to be quite useful in small group or one-on-one tutoring for struggling readers without phonics skills.

Has a super list of leveled books included, too!
