?Knowles...and Smith...have teamed up to provide a valuable guide to running book discussion groups with upper elementary and middle school students....The information on each book is succintly expressed and clearly laid out, and while intended to support literature circles this will also be of use to classroom teachers presenting these titles as well as to librarians giving booktalks.?-Kliatt
