This book analyzes and describes 125 literature books, each with follow-up activities that teachers can use to teach science, mathematics, and social studies to emergent readers.

With an emphasis being placed on teaching K-3 reading skills development, teachers have less time to spend on teaching how literature relates to the content areas. This text encourages emergent literacy as well as reading of literature on the content fields by first providing a chapter overview of Literacy, Learning, and Literature followed by chapter-long, specific introductions to content areas. Following each content area chapter is a chapter containing suggestions and activities from over 40 books that promote concept development and understanding.
