"This book articulates an innovative conception of the positive influence libraries can exert on academic achievement in today's schools. At a time when the educational curriculum is restricted to that which is measured by standardized tests, school librarians can collaborate with their teaching brethren to infuse knowledge, creativity, and leadership throughout the K-12 curriculum." --Jose Montelongo, Teachers College Record
"The book will assist school principals and other educational leaders in designing ways to further support cross-curricular literacy and teach informational responsibility." --Edythe B. Austermuhl, School Administrator
