<P>Teachers everywhere have found that book making has the power to motivate even the most reluctant writers. By combining illustr...ations and texts, children engage in a kind of communication that transcends the sum of its parts-their pictures and words interact to convey a new level of meaning. </P> <P>In <I>Pictures & Words Together</I>, Paul Johnson addresses important questions about the process: What do children learn through illustrating their texts? How do texts and illustrations "work" together? He shows how preschool and primary students can be taught to create books that fuse their writing and drawing in profound ways. He offers advice on helping children think about the most effective ways to blend text and pictures, draw the characters and settings for their narratives, and publish their books using simple cutting, folding, and binding techniques. </P> <P>Filled with practical suggestions for teaching and evaluation, as well as abundant examples of children's work, this book is essential reading for those who want to enrich the writing and visual communication experience for children. </P> Read More

"Romance, fast adventure, and a believable landscape blend together for a consuming read with a strong protagonist." -The Children...'s Book Review. *** "[I]ntrigue and espionage writing at its best...." -Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review. *** <b>To find the truth, she must first uncover the lie ?.</b> Orphaned as an infant, Sam is raised by a pharmaceutical research mission in the rain forests of Torundi. She wields a mean machete, makes soap from candlenuts and is a fairly astute amateur entomologist. You know, the normal stuff. But a month before her seventeenth birthday, she is exiled to an American boarding school in Malaysia. Armed with little more than her unusual upbringing and church-lady clothes, Sam must contend with her new existence as the world's most socially unprepared high school senior. Well that?s just fine. Because Sam is determined to solve the mystery behind her banishment and return home tout de suite. Then an antagonistic marine biology student takes up residence in her school?s science lab, and Sam suspects there is something more to his presence than an erudite devotion to kelp and sea worms. But when she discovers the unthinkable ? that he has been sent by a corporation to keep tabs on her ? she realizes the real mystery she must uncover is ... why? Soon, Sam is caught in a whirlwind of intrigue, danger and greed. As she chases this thread of truth to its end, she unravels a plot that threatens her beloved Torundi, her trust in the boy she has grown to love and her own existence. Blending espionage elements akin to The Bourne Identity with those awkward high-school-awkward-moments (hey, it could happen), THE ORPHAN OF TORUNDI is a quirky, cross-cultural tale of adventure, self-discovery and romance.
