From "Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass" to "Maniac Magee," sci-fi to op-ed, "Casey at the Bat" to a moving true story about the reunion of two Hololcaust survivors, this wonderfully diverse collection of excerpts from newspapers, magazines, and books has been created by Jim Trelease especially to turn young people on to the many pleasures of reading. Here are thought-provoking columns from Mike Royko and Pete Hamill; excerpts from classics like "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "Rikki-tikki-tavi"; autobiographical sketches by Maya Angelou, Moss Hart, and others, highlighting the imoportance of reading in their lives; and much more. With selections representing many different cultures, genres, writing styles, and interests, "Read All About It!" is a wonderful introduction to the riches of literature and to a lifetime of reading.
