Hi. I am Zack Barnes, and welcome to A to Z Book Reviews. I am an Assistant Professor of Special Education in the Teaching and Learning Department at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN. I created this blog while a classroom teacher because I thought it was so important to share great books with parents, fellow teachers, and anyone else who is interested in reading.
I will be reviewing a lot of middle grade, young adult, and picture books on this blog. I believe teachers should be readers, and the same is true for professors. As I sometimes teach the Literature for Children course, I want to make sure I am staying on top of books and trends in the children and teen market.
If you are interested in my research, you can visit my Executive Function and Reading Lab. I am interested in how executive function impacts reading ability.
You can follow me on twitter at @zbarnes and email at Zack (at) zbarnes.com.
