I am devoted follower of the Read-Aloud Handbook, and I thought for sure Jim Trelease was officially retired, so imagine my delight when this seventh edition appeared on Amazon! To make things even better, there is tremendous amount of new material in this edition. I have read the sixth edition front to back multiple times (I even did a blog series reviewing it chapter by chapter), and I have a copy of the first edition that I found at the used bookstore, but now I think I might have to invest in copies of editions 2, 3, 4 and 5 as well! Trelease really does replace at least 40 percent of the content and significantly revise the book list. This is definitely worth ordering if you already have a previous edition.
