The Dan and Sam Reader is a carefully constructed series of 60 illustrated short stories that make reading easy and fun for childr...en, especially those who are still learning to read. The stories begin using a few basic words in repetitive sentences and slowly build to more naturally worded text. The stories introduce the world to Dan and Sam, two best friends growing up in search of everyday adventure, food, and fun. They play football. They eat. They go fishing. They eat. Sometimes they just sit around ... and eat. Their biggest problems include the wrath of Kim, the mean neighborhood girl, and of course, running out of food. In the end, they make peace with Kim and solve a mystery so their good times can roll on. About the Author: Paul A. Delvaux grew up in Green Bay, Wisconsin, in a great neighborhood with a creek out back where kids played outside without worries. His childhood there, his imagination, and his experience as a teacher of struggling readers led to the development of the Dan and Sam stories. He still lives and enjoys everyday adventures in Green Bay with his wife, two daughters, and a yellow dog. Publisher's website: http://sbprabooks.com/PaulADelvaux Read More

Every child loves going to the library, but Michael's usual trip to the public library turns into an imaginative, legendary advent...ure: <i>"...Some people may say that our friend, Michael, had been asleep and dreaming about a lamb named Jacob and his family... but then, how could he have been a part of such a very special day?"</i> Follow Michael on this elaborate journey and find out how! <br><br> The book offers a glimpse into the world of childhood, where imagination takes the child inside of the story; a picture book about unexpected friendship, about family and traditions and about the importance of imagination; an andventure for the "brand new readers" as well as for the "advanced beginners" ( beginner text- preK, K, 1st & 2nd grades / advanced text - older readers). <br><br> 2-in-1 BOOK - for long term reading enjoyment! While the right-hand pages, containing sight-word sentences and illustrated new words, are designed for beginners, on the left-hand pages the story continues deeply into details for the advanced readers. The book is designed to provide long term enjoyable reading experiences for now and for the future: at first the young children would read just their designated pages, built using sight-words, and later, once their reading skills are improved, they will read and discover the entire story by themselves. <br><br> Advanced readers could step in and share the reading experience with the "brand new readers" by taking turns reading out loud the advanced text and motivate the young readers to do the same reading their primer-text, built using sight-words. But this is just an option, not a requirement for finishing reading the book. The advanced-texts as well as the primer-texts are independent, so the book can be enjoyed by different reading level children by themselves from the beginning 'til the end. <br><br> Sight word acquisition is an important building block in the construction of a child's ability to read. Once the children are able to read sight-words, they have access to up to 75% of what is printed in almost any piece of children's literature. Beyond sight-words, PixelPole's books are introducing few more new and illustrated words to build the vocabulary. <br><br> Sharing the reading enjoyment is proved to increase reading development and start a lifetime of reading enjoyment. You will have a very special day reading PixelPole's books to your child and watching hers/his first steps into reading! Read More

<p>Jacklyn Blake Clayton challenges the notion of "tolerance" for cultural differences-a notion that implies resignation, passivit...y, superiority-and offers instead another challenge-to understand the building blocks of all cultures. This understanding is the keystone that holds together a variety of world views and creates a more solid structure for meaningful interactions between teachers and students. </p> <p> Each chapter of her book looks at an aspect of culture that affects the classroom: <ul> <li>how children are socialized</li> <li>how values can differ from culture to culture</li> <li>how learning styles may be influenced</li> <li>how verbal and nonverbal communication differ across cultures</li> <li>how immigrant children acculturate</li> <li>how the mainstream classroom in the United States has its own culture.</li> </ul> Deftly combining theory and practice, Clayton incorporates into her book general suggestions for applying concepts to the classroom, plus numerous sections called "Try this!" with specific questions, prompts, or activities to promote inquiry and reflection. </p> Read More

The show was featuring dog sled races during a yearly Canadian Trappers? Carnival.

Readers' Favorite: Book Reviews and Award Contest /Mamta Madhavan 5/5 review!"Supernatural Hero (Action & Adventure) (Comics & Gra...phic Novels) by Eran Gadot is a story that children can relate to easily. Andy is the typical nerd you will come across in your class. He is in grade six, skinny, wears glasses, and then falls in love with Zoe, the prettiest girl in his class. The twist in the story happens when Andy's grandfather dies and turns into a ghost. Now Andy has the power of seeing ghosts and communicating with them. He decides to use that power to the fullest. The paranormal activities make Andy a supernatural hero and the book is about the transformation of nerd Andy into a supernatural hero. It is a very entertaining theme where one can relate to Andy and his nerdy behavior, which sees him being the butt of many jokes in class. The transformation of this nerdy boy is done very well and the change is fluid. It is the type of story that kids will find fascinating. The black and white sketches are beautiful and they give an individuality to the characters and the scenes. The manner in which Andy handles the situations in his life is noteworthy. The theme covers everything that is part of a child's life: parents, school, friends, bullies, pretty girl, and much more. It is an entertaining read with a relatable character and exciting adventures that make it a fast paced story. Now from the nerd that he was, will this supernatural hero get the girl?" Read More

Sara?s parents will do anything to live and raise their children as Jews. In Spain during the 1490?s, that means leaving wealth, ...valuables and a comfortable life behind to set sail for the Ottoman Empire. Sara is reluctant to leave her familiar childhood home until she understands what her priorities really are. Will Sara be able to save her friend from the clutches of the Inquisition? Will she rescue a precious heirloom challah plate from the heartless Spanish soldiers? And will she ever be up to the challenge of baking a perfect challah all by herself? More Precious than Gold is geared to children ages 7-10 who still need large, clear letters and an occasional illustration as they try out their skills. Most importantly, More Precious than Gold is packed with Jewish historical content and detail about the expulsion from Spain in 1492 to make a child's reading experience truly worthwhile. It's a story of adventure, sacrifice, and important Torah values of a family that chooses to leave behind all their wealth and the comfort of Spain in order to live in a country that will allow them to be fully, openly Jewish. More Precious than Gold is a carefully researched and excitingly written page-turner especially for second through fourth graders eager to read quality material on their own. Read More
