From School Library Journal
This down-to-earth, practical handbook incorporates many of the collaborative activities recommended by the American Association of School Librarians national standards, Information Power. The step-by-step instructions will serve novices and experienced grant writers. The author's advice about reading grants to gain experience is excellent. Developing a plan, identifying the need, writing, rewriting, and rewriting again are all encouraged. The ideas, encouragement, and guidelines apply to any grant application process. Readers would do well to become acquainted with the 12 appendixes as soon as possible; the online journals and Web sites listed are invaluable resources. However, there is a lack of information about state agencies. Many times federal money flows through these agencies, which aren't listed. The other omission is a discussion of "outcomes." More and more frequently grants require that the applicant indicate what difference the monies will make to students. What changes will result if this program is funded? Will reading scores increase? Will parents use the library? Despite these drawbacks, this title is a useful addition.

"Anderson and Knop have produced a practical step by step guide to applying for grants. They take the reader through identifying a need, using the evaluation of students' learning needs and student outcomes, careful reading of grant stipulations, making a plan, and writing and rewriting. There is a CD included that shows sample grants, resumes and more. A worthwhile resource for all considering applying for a grant." - Pennsylvania School Librarians Association
"In this update of a resource for and by school media specialists and educators, the grant application process is clearly covered from identifying a need to turning rejection into future success. Appendices include resources, a glossary, the top U.S. grant- making foundations, directory of state Humanities Councils, and a sample grant proposal format. The CD provides a PowerPoint presentation on how to write grants, examples of funded grants, and sample resumes, curriculum vitae, and fund-raising materials." - Reference & Research Book News
"Knowing how to write grants has always been an education necessity, but for most educators, it is a mystery. This book may be a start to unraveling some grant-writing secrets. In order to write grants, the author says, you need to read grants. So, while the book is a fast read, the time spent learning to write grants may not be. It's not a one-person task, either. The books shares tips for team building, members' tasks, and how to avoid failure. It has simple points to follow, from proofreading to including graphics to getting the budgets right. It is a primer for anyone with a great idea looking for a grant." - District Administration
