The book takes the reader on a journey across the Indian
subcontinent—”years of India’s religious, political, and cultural
changes,” and begins with a woman named Anjum unrolling a carpet in a
graveyard she calls home. Narratives of other characters begin to weave
into the picture: the odd Tilo, romantic interest Musa, Tilo’s landlord,
two people named Miss Jebeen. It’s a violent, humorous, ironic, and
heartbreaking story.

  美国中小学生要读哪七近似书?

这按照开引领读者来印度糟糕地,讲述了“印度宗教、政治和学识变革之年份”,书的开业是一个被安尤姆的夫人在它称作家的坟茔打开一布置毯子,故事通过展开。其他人士之描述逐渐勾勒出故事之概貌:怪人提洛,浪漫风趣的穆萨,提洛的二房东,还有点儿各类吉宾小姐。这是一个强力、幽默、讽刺与教人难受之故事。

  常听美国侨民老人[微博]针对各自的孩子辈说,读书,娃们,你如果多读啊。即使本人本人,也不时这样提醒自己之男女要多看。书是一个要命概念,尤其是市面上发生这样多绚丽的娃娃书籍,
我们这些父母到底要叫儿女辈读什么书吗?仔细考虑,我们大海捞针般地吧儿女等选择图书,其实是桩十分无便于之事务。

2.《花月杀手:奥沙谋杀案和联邦调查局的出生》(Killers of the Flower
Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI),作者:大卫·格雷恩

  为我家小宝为条例,每次去图书馆,已经上初一的异,还是容易看像哈利波特这样的魔幻小说。如果本身提醒他读读世界名著,他时不时不屑一顾,甚至还振振有词地告知自己,“我读之开,我之同桌等吧在念。我便是轻看科幻魔幻小说。”无独有偶。在美国亚马逊的购书网站上,销量最高的儿童图书确实是科幻魔幻类图书。这种购书状态间接解释了为何美国男女还容易读这看似书。

This book centers on the Native American tribe known as the Osage, who
in the 1920s managed to negotiate to maintain the mineral rights for
their land in Oklahoma. In time it made the Osage very rich—and that’s
when they started dying through a series of execution-style shootings,
poisonings, and exploding houses. The story follows J. Edgar Hoover’s
investigation.

  显而易见的凡,
不管孩子辈何其迷恋哈利波特,他们肯定不克惟因魔幻书籍汲取知识的养分。博览群书,对儿女等一样适用。在美国底图书市场上,一共有七近乎孩子书籍可供应选择。根据孩子的兴和年龄,我们这些老人如时时准备在,随时为男女等的图书选择做好必要的调。

本书要描述了印第安口群体奥沙的故事。这个部落在达标世纪20年份通过谈判,成功维护了她们于俄克拉荷马州土地及的开采权。这一度被奥沙部落变得稀具有

然后她们中了同等名目繁多高居决式的枪杀、中毒以及房子爆炸,接连有人过世。书中著录了J.埃德加·胡佛的调查过程。

  言归正传,美国中小学生到底要读哪七十分类图书为?

3.《贝尔镇》(Beartown),作者:弗雷德里克·贝克曼

  第一近乎:经典故事。白雪公主,小红帽,属于这仿佛体裁。

It’s part domestic drama (a family pulled apart by an act of violence),
it’s part coming-of-age story (for the young adults at the story’s
center). Can a handful of people change a scrappy, tight-knit community
with declining finances? The answer begins to unfold in the first few
pages and doesn’t let up until the last.

  第二看似:历史小说。以过去底史也背景,和子女成长有关的小说故事属于即同一接近。

及时按照开讲述了一个家园的悲欢离合(一个人家因平宗暴力犯罪而四划分五裂),也是一律虽说后生成长的故事(对于故事核心之子弟)。几独人口能否改变一个经济状况慢慢恶化的乱、严密的社区?答案在前边几乎页徐徐进行,但直到开的最后才真相大白。

  第三像样:当代小说。顾名思义,就是暨现代子女的在与傅有关的小说。

4.《一路通往外来》(Exit West),作者:莫欣·哈米德

  第四看似:儿童诗集,亦即顺应孩子辈阅读的娃子诗集。

The book centers on a young couple, Nadia and Saeed, who fall in love in
a distant city that turns violent. The activity causes the pair to leave
behind their loved ones and flee the country through magic doors. It’s a
story about being in exile and establishing one’s place in the world.

  第五接近:人物传记类图书。

当下本开之东道主是一律针对青春情侣娜迪亚和萨伊德,他们于一个久的市里相爱,但以此市后来成了暴力无情之野的乡。两独相爱的食指被迫去亲人,通过魔法门逃离这个国家。这是同尽管有关逃亡和什么以这世界找到自己的职的故事。

  第六看似:信息类图书。比如那些因漫画的措施吧儿女等讲解科学知识的书就属于即无异于类似。

5.《你不用说您爱自我》 (You Don’t Have to Say You Love
Me),作者:谢尔曼·亚历斯

  第七近似:魔幻科幻小说。现在底儿女顶迷恋这类似图书,哈利波特属于这同样类似。

A memoir set in the Spokane Indian Reservation that centers on the
complicated relationship between a mother (“whip-smart, sometimes
cruel”) and son. “Readable, unpretentious, funny, and deeply
compassionate,” notes Amazon’s Sarah Harrison Smith.

  这七像样书,就比如七种植食品同样,孩子等必须平衡阅读,才会获得全面正规之知营养。所以说,我们这些家长应尽量吃孩子辈读书这七像样书被之每一样接近图书,不可知被男女仅沉浸在哈利波特的社会风气里。

当即仍回忆录的背景是于斯波坎印第安人保留地,讲述了一个母亲(非常明白,有时候很残酷)与儿子里的错综复杂关系。亚马逊编辑萨拉·哈里森·史密斯形容这本开“可读性强,朴实无华,幽默有趣,非常振奋人心。”

  值得一提的是,根据孩子辈的升学情况,美国院校为以天天调整这七近乎书中不同书籍的开卷比例。特别要指出的凡,随着孩子年级的增长,信息类图书的阅读量要不停多。美国中小学现在发出一个“共同核心”(COMMON
CORE)教学大[微博]焦点,除了弗吉尼亚以及得州以外,美国之旁州都接受这教学大纲。在是教学大纲的指点下,在美国中小学,文学与信息类图书的看比例是:

昔日,听老师天天念叨:”书籍是全人类前进的阶梯“,现在人到中年了,终于体会到了书以咱们人生中所饰的角色。希望观看这篇稿子的公,也会尝尝读来书的魅力。

  四年级: 文学类书籍占阅读之50%,信息类图书占另外的50%。

  八年级:文学类图书占阅读之45%,信息类图书占另外的55%

  十二年级:文学类图书占阅读之30%,信息类图书占另外的70%。

  这组数据印证,在美国学堂,随着年级的提高,学生若读越多之信息类图书。换句话说,随着孩子岁数的加,家长设啊子女提供再多之信息类图书才对。只有这样,家庭才会跟美国院校的看要求对,孩子等才会于读书中收获无限特别之机能。

  以上的这些儿童图书信息,主要来自最新的美国儿童文学教学内容。为了体会这些情节,美国执教要求美国儿童文学课的学生等做一个好课题:阅读每类图书,体会不同类型儿童书籍提供的异内容,书写各类图书报告。

  以下是自身自身在阅读这七近似图书之后开的阅读报告。经过这个课题的磨炼,我自己确实发现及,让儿女读不同类别的毛孩子书籍,对她们之知成长是多么的最主要。

  1. 信息类图书:

  The Stuff of Life: A Graphic Guide to Genetics and DNA

  Schultz, Mark (Author)

  Cannon, Zander and Cannon, Kevin (Illustrators)

  New York: A Novel Graphic from Hill and Wang, A Division of Farror,
Straus and Giroux, 2009

  This graphic information book is a detailed introduction of Genetics
by a perspective view of an alien, Bloort 138, who needs to explore and
understand the life on the planet earth in order to master the genetic
troubles on his unknown planet. By the narration of this alien, the
evolution of life on earth is explained at different levels: atoms, DNA,
RNA and protein. Key scientists for the development of Genetics are
introduced as well. Readers are provided with all the essential
information about genetics in this well-illustrated book, which include
five chapters discussing the human genetics and its clinical application
to benefit human beings (ANNOTATION)。

  This book is a good example of blend-genre book in children
literature. In this information book, alien and fantasy are involved as
a way of narration. The black-whites illustrations in this book make
difficult topic in genetics become easier to understand. The text
content of this book is very difficult and not suitable for young
readers, although the illustrations are fun for young readers to read.
Therefore, this book mainly targets high school students. Science
teachers in high schools or colleges can benefit from this book, too.
The evolution concept in the book might offend Christians who believe
that God creates life. (PERSONAL RESPONSE)

appreciate other people’s work in a non-didactic way. The young children

  Sounder

  Armstrong, William H。(Author)

  Barkley, James (Illustrator)

  New York: Harper Trophy, 2002 (Revised Edition)

  This story happens in the nineteen-century South where a poor
African-American family has a painful struggle in their life. After the
father in this family is put into jail and their dog Sounder is wounded
by a white official, the boy of the family begins his lonely journey to
find the place where his father is in prison and the wounded dog Sounder
which wanders around without any trace. In his searching journey, the
boy experiences several failures and disappointments. It is his mother
who encourages him to be patient and wait for Lord for help. The boy
gradually learns the life wisdom with the help of his mother and a
teacher whom he randomly meets in a school. After the family has reunion
with the crippled father and three leg Sounder, the boy begins to
understand the true meaning of life and death under the lecture of his
teacher: “Only the unwise think that what has changed is dead。” When
both the father and the dog Sounder eventually die at the end, the boy
faces the fate with calmness。(ANNOTATION)。

  The title of the book is a little bit misleading to readers.
Although the dog Sounder is the main character of the story, the book
mainly focuses on the growth of the boy. As a historical realism
fiction, this book also provides a coming-of-age story in which the
growth of the lonely boy is well shown. There are many allusions to
Bible in this book, which might indicate the religion belief of the
author. The mother in the story is a great woman and she is the life
guidance of the boy, just like the mother in movie Forrest Gump.
Therefore this fictional story could function as a parenting book in
which moral lessons are taught in a non-didacticism manner. (PERSONAL

  Cinderella

  Brown, Marcia。

  New York: Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 1954

  There are many different versions of Cinderalla in different
cultures around world. Based on the French Version by Charles Perrault,
this picture book was translated and illustrated by Marcia Brown, an
American writer and illustrator (1918- ). This book is written for
children aged 5-8. As a universal story, this book tells a well known
story about the love and life journey of a mistreated girl (Cinderalla)
by her step-sisters and step mother. (ANNOTATION)

  Although this book aims to target children aged 5-8, many words in
the book are difficult for young children to understand. The ending of
this version is different from the Grimm’s version in which Cinderella’s
stepsisters are blind as a punishment. The happy ending of Cinderella’s
stepsisters in this book reflects forgiveness and hope of human life.
The fantasy in this traditional children literature book will continue
to attract children in the years to come. (PERSONAL RESPONSE)

  The Secret River

  Rawlings, Marjorie Kinnan

  New York: Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 2011

  This is a children fantasy book with illustration at each page.
Calpurnia is little girl who lives with her parents and her dog. As an
owner of a fish store, her father is going to lose his business because
no fish are available for sale in the store. To help her family to turn
hard times to soft times, Calpurnia goes to a forest that holds a river
for fishing. After her gets lots of fish from this river, her father’s
store has fish for sale and their life becomes better. However, when
Calpurnia wants to go for fishing again, the river in the forest is
gone. After asking her mom for answers, Calpurnia finally understands
that “The secret river is in my mind./I can go there anytime。”
(ANNOTATION)

  This story has a backdrop setting thus the similar story could
happen everywhere. Although no race is mentioned in the text, the
illustrations show that Calpurnia is a black girl. This illustration
might provide stereotype for African American families where poverty is
common. The author uses magic realism technique to tell this fantasy
story in which frog talks and the secret river is like a dream. Young
readers could learn life morals from this story easily. The story is
touching but not didacticism. (PERSONAL RESPONSE)

Maryland. As a conclusion of this book, Dr. Carson told young students
that his success in life resulted from THINK BIG. (ANNOTATION)

  The majority of the book is written by Dr. Carson. However, his
colleague Susan Warnick and his mother contributed some writings in this
book. Therefore this book belongs to Autobiography/Biography. Overall,
his stories are very inspirational to both young students and adults. It
is clear that he has strong faith on God and he believes that God gives
him his gifted hands. At the end of the book, he criticized American
education in an indirect way. He questioned that the public media
emphasizes too many news on school sports and music, which might mislead
young students for impossible success. His willingness to help and guide
young generation is deeply appreciated by me. (PERSONAL RESPONSE)

leave her. Parents do not understand her. Almost no one trusts her. How

suffer silently and ask help when needed. (PERSONAL RESPONSE)
