Moving and Learning Across the Curriculum: More Than 300 Activities and Games to Make Learning Fun is now out in its' 2nd edition. Movement is the young child's preferred method of learning. This is because when a child physically experiences concepts, they understand them more completely and retain the information longer.

Every community faces the problem of the child who learns slowly in school. The problem of providing proper educational opportunities for these children is a serious one, especially as the compulsory age limit for school attendance is raised, and must be provided over a lengthened school period. The basic principles and practices in an adequate program for slow-learning children are essentially the same as for all children, and programs for the slow-learning child are an integral part of the general school program. A measure of educational growth is attainable for every child, and this book contains specific discussions and practical help on how to develop adequate programs for all slow-learning children.

Family Language Learning is a practical guide designed to support, advise and encourage any parents who are hoping to raise their children bilingually. It is unique in that it focuses on parents who are not native speakers of a foreign language. It gives parents the tools they need to cultivate and nurture their own language skills while giving their children an opportunity to learn another language. The book combines cutting-edge research on language exposure with honest and often humorous stories from personal interviews with families speaking a foreign language at home. By dispelling long-held myths about how language is learned, it provides hope to parents who want to give their children bilingual childhoods, but feel they don't know where to start with learning foreign languages.
