Essential Literary Genres - School Library Connection
This set uses tools that enable students to better understand each major genre. Selected works within each title give students a strong grasp of storytelling, characters, setting, and point of view. This series would be a good asset for secondary schools with literature and Advanced Placement classes as well as book clubs.
