Each of the 200 titles is described on a reproducible page that features a short introductory book talk and 10 questions to give to students. Students are encouraged to use the page to find someone in the group who has climbed a tree (The Alphabet Tree), has broken a dish (And the Dish Ran Away With the Spoon), has been bothered by a bully (Wemberly Worried) or has been teased by someone else(Chrysanthemum).

The lessons can be adapted for nonreaders by using the pages as group read aloud activities. Librarians will also find this a great tool for icebreaker activities in staff development settings.

Titles covered range from award winners, to fairy tales, to classics.

Find Someone Who Reviews

"Capitalizing on a familiar party icebreaker game, Polette shows a new way to present well-known picture books to preschoolers and primary-grade students. A one-paragraph booktalk introduces the story and is followed by 10 questions based upon the characters or situations. Children are instructed to find someone in their group who can relate to a portion of the story. Using Don Freeman's Corduroy , for example, youngsters are asked to find someone who has lost a button or someone who has a teddy bear at home. Even though the questions are all on reproducible pages, nonreaders can participate by listening to the questions as they are read aloud. The titles are arranged alphabetically. The author, known for her expertise in picture-book activities, has selected popular titles, ranging from folktales to award winners, many of which should be readily available in libraries. The book will be useful for quick, spur-of-the-moment planning as well as for quality lesson plans in working with ESL groups." - School Library Journal
"By using the lists of questions found in this volume, librarians and teachers can help children relate to the characters and stories in some 200 picture books. Organized alphabetically by book title, the lists (containing ten questions each) are designed to be either read aloud or photocopied and distributed. Participants then circulate through the classroom and find someone who... (for example) has two sisters or has been a new student in school." - Reference & Research Book News
"Encouraging children to see similarities between themselves and the book and amongst themselves, this work is of use to anyone working with an audience from nursery school through high school. Teachers will also appreciate the content of the work, while older students will benefit from the use of these exercises as an introduction to literary concepts." - ARBA
