MEDIA REVIEWS
A parent-friendly guide filled with expert ideas, suggestions, and activities for improving your child's reading abilities and maximizing their scores on standardized reading tests. -- Richard Bollinger, education consultant
As an early childhood education director, I have seen over the years a greater emphasis placed on assessments and weightier attention being given to the core curriculum and standards for the three- and four-year-old groups. Having a book like Mr. Schneider's would offer parents, even of very young children, appealing and pleasurable techniques to help their own children learn to become better readers, communicators, and writers. His Tool Box ideas and hands-on, creative, and stimulating activities in each of these areas are inspirational. I can't wait to offer some of his suggestions to the parents at my schools. His usage of anecdotal stories and personal quotes from people that meant so much to him give this book an enlightened edge to a topic that...[is] clearly essential in helping parents and teachers navigate today's educational demands. -- Debra Katz, head start education director
Mr. Schneider's book emphasized the partnership between teachers and parents in helping students to become literate young adults. He speaks of learning, not only to prepare students for standardized tests, but to make students lifelong learners, appreciative of recognizing good written work in others and producing it on their own. The main content of the book provides the reader with an overview of the skills that need to be mastered in a total literacy program. The contents of each chapter provide a wealth of direction to both teachers and parents with activities that will add to a student's literacy competence. Bravo on a well written book! -- Steven Schulner, elementary school teacher and parent
