When I was in Mr. Bussoni’s fifth-grade classroom (Barone, 2006), I observed this process in action. He preselected five books for independent reading: Saving Shiloh (Naylor, 1999), Skitterbrain (Brown, 1992), Cousins (Hamilton, 1992), The Black Pearl (O’Dell, 1996), and Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher (Covill, 1991). Mr. Bussoni gave a short talk on each book, where he shared the author, other books by the author, an approximate reading level, and the book’s genre. Once the book talks were concluded, students previewed each book during the day and signed up for their first and second choices.
