Author(s) : Susan Bennett-Armistead, Nell Duke, Annie Moses
Price :$23.99
While most parents understand the importance of promoting literacy in their young children, they often aren't sure how to do it. This book provides guidance. Taking a ""literacy-throughout-the-day"" approach, the authors organize the book around spaces in the home-the kitchen, bedroom, living room, and so forth-and suggest fun, stimulating activities for building children's reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills in those spaces. Filled with tips, photos, milestones to watch for, and great ideas to try today, Beyond Bedtime Stories is essential reading.

Stories to Read Aloud

Author(s) : Jim Trelease
Price :$17.00
The 50 selections, sensibly grouped by subject (real life, fantasy, classics, folktales) and difficulty, range from good to outstanding. Some are complete stories; others are appetite-whetting chapters from novels; all are aimed at K-4. Many pieces come from "old favorites" ( Bambi , Homer Price , Charlotte's Web ), while others have been rescued from undeserved obscurity (including a French gem, "The Magic Thread"). Each carefully chosen piece has also been given a setting that shows it to best advantage. Trelease easily captures the reader's interest, particularly with his engaging introductions but also with the lively note on follow-up reading that rounds out each selection.
