Anderson, S.B. (2007). Serving young teens and 'tweens. Westport, CT: Libraries Unlimited.
The teenaged library can be a trial, to which many librarians can attest. This book gives them strong reminders of what is happening to them developmentally that might help librarians in dealing with this age bracket. The first chapter should be required reading for all library staff members. The booktalking chapter will be helpful to anyone needing encouragement for school visits. Few libraries could go wrong with purchasing this highly recommended title for youth and teen librarians' professional collections.
-VOYA August 2007
Well-qualified contributors provide practical ideas, balanced and specific examples, up-to-date book lists, and citations to research-oriented works. From the first chapter ("Childhood Left Behind") to the index, the book is sure to provide working librarians with tools they'll use immediately. The booktalking section alone, with few titles older than 2002, gives advice on classroom presentations plus usable write-ups of more than two-dozen talks. A terrific book for most public, middle- and high-school professional collections.
