The Service Learning Bookshelf
2000-2002, thanks to a grant from the Corporation for
National and Community Service through the Learn
and Serve America Program, author Cathryn Berger Kaye was able to distribute
500 copies of the Service Learning Bookshelf: A Bibliography of Fiction and Nonfiction
to Inspire Student Learning and Action to 21 CSU colleges of education.
The Service Learning Bookshelf provides descriptions of over 170
nonfiction books, picture books and novels that can enhance service-learning
activities in K-12 settings. The book has been a valuable resource
for CSU student teachers and new teachers (CSU alumni) that are
working to implement service-learning projects in their classrooms.

"At last there is a handy compendium
of literature teachers can use to enhance their students’
service learning. Divided by topic and grade level, annotated,
and enriched with author interviews, this publication is a
valuable contribution to the burgeoning field of service learning."
