"An exuberant treasure trove for parents." —Publishers Weekly Are children reading enough? Not according to most parents and teachers, who know that reading aloud with children fosters a lifelong love of books, ensures better standardized test scores, promotes greater success in school, and helps instill the values we most want to pass on. Esmé Raji Codell—an inspiring children's literature specialist and an energetic teacher—has the solution. She's turned her years of experience with children, parents, librarians, and fellow educators into a great big indispensable volume designed to help parents get their kids excited about reading. Here are hundreds of easy and inventive ideas, innovative projects, creative activities, and inspiring suggestions that have been shared, tried, and proven with children from birth through eighth grade. This five-hundred-page volume is brimming with themes for superlative storytimes and book-based birthday parties, ideas for mad-scientist experiments and half-pint cooking adventures, stories for reluctant readers and book groups for boys, step-by-step instructions for book parades, book-related crafts, storytelling festivals, literature-based radio broadcasts, readers' theater, and more. There are book lists galore, with subject-driven reading recommendations for science, math, cooking, nature, adventure, music, weather, gardening, sports, mythology, poetry, history, biography, fiction, and fairy tales. Codell's creative thinking and infectious enthusiasm will empower even the busiest parents and children to include literature in their lives.

Learning mathematics is the central goal of mathematics education, yet it is the least frequently addressed of NCTM's Principles and Standards. With an increasing population of English language learners and the inclusion of students with learning disabilities into the regular mathematics classroom, how can all the differentiated needs be met in one classroom? What is the balance between focusing on developing concepts and memorisation of certain facts and rules? The Learning of Mathematics, NCTM's sixty-ninth yearbook, furthers the discourse on learning with five main areas: how students learn, students' learning in school contexts, measuring and interpreting students' learning, teachers' learning of mathematics and reflections on mathematics teaching and learning.

This book features investigations in each of the five content areas of Principles and Standards for School Mathematics. In addition to using Eratosthenes' sieve to identify prime numbers, fourth graders evaluate algebraic relationships in contracts between theatre owners and movie distributors. They consider geometric possibilities for rectangular puzzles, convert surprising real-world measures into equivalent but more comprehensible measures and examine tables and graphs to extrapolate missing data. As they work, they infer, generalise, reason by analogy, recognise relationships and make representations and they also guess, check and revise and verify their results. The supplemental CD-ROM features interactive electronic activities, master copies of activity pages for students and additional readings for teachers.
