  • My Recommendation
    This book is a great resource for parents, teachers, and community leaders alike.
    The defined learning areas give substance to what can be an otherwise confusing set of “educational jargon” who are not teachers.
    The activity examples and book lists here put tools in the hands of those who will use them to build literacy.
