Call for Book Reviewers

Article excerpt

There is a fairly eclectic mix of books offered in this edition of the Call for Book Reviewers. Books describing interventions for behavior, executive skills, and social-emotional issues are included as well as books on more global topics such as bullying, internships, and character building. Hopefully, there is something for everyone.

Please submit your requests to me at spmerryl@msn.com with a short vita or summary of your qualifications so that I can match the books to the appropriate reviewer. Only requests that include the address where the book is to be sent will be considered. Listing several choices is encouraged since there are many more requests than there are books to review; please be specific in your requests. NASP members will get priority.

As in the past, it is important to get your requests in early. I try to get the books distributed within a month of Communiqué's arrival. You will have two months to read and review the book and, as always, you get to keep the book.
