Key Features


Award-winning children's author and acclaimed educator Lester L. Laminack provides guidelines, lessons, and resources for making every read-aloud experience intentional and instructional to engage students in deep thinking about fiction and nonfiction books. Central to Laminack"s message is his breakthrough thinking about the value and importance of “Best Friend Books”- a small, carefully curated collection that you turn to repeatedly for specific teaching purposes.

You'll also find:

  • Step-by-step lessons for “first visits” and “return visits” with recommended Best Friend Books-clear guidelines for digging deeply and enriching students' understanding of content and craft

  • Links to an online resource bank that contains “Spotlight on Lester” videos, graphic organizers for you, and downloadables for your students

  • “What the Research Says” boxes that point to studies supporting Laminack's professional advice

  • A list of Laminack's favorite Best Friend Books to date annotated and alphabetically-organized

  • “Home Visit” boxes that contain tips and tools for welcoming families into the work

This book bundle includes 10 copies of The Ultimate Read-Aloud Resource, 2nd Edition and 1-copy of the Scholastic Professional Book Study: The Literacy Leader's Guide. The Literacy Leader's Guide aims to help literacy leaders frame, deepen, and extend conversations about professional books with their school and district teams
