Here is the description from Scholastic's website .. Since it is  
advertised in the Arrow flyer for September (grades 4-6) I would  
assume it is meant for upper elementary or MS level. I will purchase  
(since it is such a good deal -- 75 bonus points) and if not  
appropriate, will pass along to the middle school librarian,

"16 pages and 23-minute video

Description: Jon Scieszka, former teacher and the award-winning  
author of The Stinky Cheese Man, has created a reading program that  
is geared toward getting boys interested in reading. With this  
teaching "Field Guide" and video, you'll get classroom-tested tips,  
reading lists, and activities that will motivate your boys as well as  
all reluctant readers in your class."

Most people wanted more info... one said "I have it and passed it on  
to our reading specialist.  There are definitely some good ideas in  
it and of course, Jon is a nut.  I am not sure there is anything in  
it that you don't already know, however.  For those bonus points, I  
thought we could certainly get it."
