What a great book title! The full title is Some of My Best Friends Are Books: Guiding Gifted Readers from Preschool to High School by Judith Wynn Halsted (Great Potential Press, 2002). This book is an excellent resource for those early expert readers discussed a few weeks ago — not just gifted children. It also includes ideas and book suggestions for readers as they grow. I was excited to see that a new edition is coming out in September – yea! — so I’d recommend waiting until then to purchase it, but for those looking for early expert reader books, or books appropriate to a child’s developmental level, this is a great help.
