The recommendations in this book seemed very circuitous -- they all led back to one another, rather than to other books. I would guess, in this whole book, there are fewer than 500 titles mentioned. (With 30 book webs, leading to about 50 recommendations each, there could have been 1500 books.) So, the recommendations lack variety. And in this book, the recommendations seemed particularly girl-oriented. Maybe this is unavoidable -- MUCH good literature is girl-oriented.
Still, what I like about the book is that it gives a brief write-up about the interconnected books. It would be very useful for librarians -- for making displays, that sort of thing. The book is chock-full of bookwebs, which (if your students aren't observant about how the books are so repetitious) could be made into bulletin boards.
This book led us to "No Flying in the House" and "The Red Balloon" -- two winners. So it has brought some good. But Volume 1 is the better book.
Good title index and topic index.
