The Common Core in Grades K–3 is the second in a series of comprehensive tools to tap into the vast flow of recently published books for children and teens, offering recommendations of exemplary titles for use in the classroom. Currency meets authority, brought to you by the editors of the highly regarded review sources School Library Journal and The Horn Book Magazine. This guide includes hundreds of selections for grades K–3 published since 2007 recommended by The Horn Book Magazine. The titles are grouped by subject and complemented by School Library Journal’s “Focus On” columns, which spotlight specific topics across the curriculum. Providing context for the guide, and suggestions on how to use these resources within a standards framework, is an introduction by Common Core experts Mary Ann Cappiello and Myra Zarnowski. These educators provide perspective on the key changes brought by the new standards, including suggestions on designing lessons and two sample plans. Following the introduction, you’ll find a wealth of books, by category. (Note that the guide is Dewey-Decimal based, so you may want to dig around, for example, in “Social Sciences” to find some titles that you might first seek in “History” or “Science.”) Each section includes a listing of the top titles with brief, explicit annotations, and key bibliographic data. “Focus On” articles are appended to appropriate categories to support in-depth curricular development. Each of these articles includes a topic overview and list of current and retrospective resources (including some fiction) and multimedia, enabling educators to respond to the Common Core State Standards call to work across formats.

Poetry. Winner of the 2007 Quercus Review Poetry Series Annual Book Award. "As the title itself suggests, RECYCLE SUBURBIA is a place of contradictions, where the poet is desperate to make meaning of his world, to find the extraordinary in the mundane. The plain and the surreal, the erotic and the commonplace come together to create a space that is as rich as it is troubling, fantastic as it is familiar. Here, 'Sixty miles from Detroit, everything becomes a car metaphor.' Here, 'We carry galaxies in our mouths'"--Blas Falconer. Dan Nowak is currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Nebraska and an editorial assistant for New Sins Press. Dan Nowak is currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Nebraska and an editorial assistant for New Sins Press. This is his first book of poems.
