Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a very solid reader as it has been around a long time and Trimmer and Hairston are professional teachers and writers. They obviously have kept living contact with the classroom as the book has both very update selections and incredible electronic online support and writing complements. Of all the readers out there, this is one of the best."

"A nice collection of interesting and diverse short stories that has themes that all of my students can relate."

"[THE RIVER READER] offers a wide breadth of materials in a convenient package that is small enough to carry around."

It's nice if you want short stories that show struggle, persistence and dedication. Since they're shot passages you don't get bored easily.
