This book is a treasure. Readers of all ages can learn much from this relatively small volume. The authors report on the beginnings of a book group for grades 2-4 and their parents which started with a discussion of "Mr. Popper's Penguins." As they refined their process, their group expanded to higher grades as their initial members asked them to continue the group when they outgrew it.

In addition to the information on decoding a book beginning with the protagonist/antagonist, identifying the climax, grading the author, etc. provided by discussing real titles published for children, they also provide additional lists separated by grade level.
