Breathing New Life Into Book Clubs: A Practical Guide for Teachers by Sonja Cherry-Paul, Dana Johansen


3.5 stars-
This is a great introduction to book clubs for teachers in grades 3-8. It's especially useful for the middle grades, 4-6, in my opinion. Many of the strategies and structures seem like they would work best in a longer literacy block. I have been working with book clubs for years, and found that many of the ideas in the book were not necessarily "new" to me, but I would definitely recommend this to teachers just starting out with book clubs, or those who are stuck using roles to feel comfortable with book clubs.
