Keane, Nancy J., and Terence W. Cavanaugh. The Tech-Savvy Booktalker: A Guide for 21st-Century Educators. Westport, CT: Libraries Unlimited, 2009. ISBN: 978-1-59158-637-1
To these authors, booktalking extends well beyond the traditional idea of getting in front of an audience with books in hand and short summaries or enticements on the lips. They teach how to incorporate audio and video, and how to use technology to spice up text-driven "talks." The publisher notes this book is for grades 6 to 12, but I think younger students can apply many of these concepts, and certainly librarians and teachers in elementary schools can.

Van Orden, Phyllis J., and Sunny Strong. Children's Books: A Practical Guide to Selection. New York: Neal-Schuman, 2007. ISBN: 1-55570-584-7

So what makes one version of a fairy tale something to purchase and another version something to skip? What factors do you consider when deciding whether or not to order a certain nonfiction title? This book offers ways to make selection a more concrete process.
