Summary
"Providing teachers, librarians, and staff development personnel with a comprehensive, step-by-step introduction to teaching thinking skills, this book - written by a former professor of Education turned national consultant and author specializing in reading, gifted education, library media, and children's literature - offers a unique approach to this important issue. Addressing over 30 skills in all - ranging from deductive reasoning to inferential and perceptual thinking - each thinking skill is presented in a one-page, reproducible format that can easily be adapted to a transparency or PowerPoint slide, followed by several self-contained activities using fairy tales and fantasy books as the basis for teaching that skill."--BOOK JACKET
