What guy takes his granddaughter to the aquarium and spouts fish puns all day? Who accompanies her to a children’s recreation center and almost faints in the bouncy house? And which grandpa goes to the White House Easter Egg Roll so he can introduce his precious pumpkin not to the president but to Peppa Pig? Jerry Zezima, who also gives grandfatherly advice to Prince Charles, peddles his granddaughter’s preschool fundraiser, introduces her to the neighborhood ice cream man, and does lots of other fun stuff, both with and without his adorable princess, which may explain why she is more mature than he is. In “Grandfather Knows Best,” nationally syndicated humorist Jerry Zezima writes about the joys of grandparenthood and the things one man will do for the little girl who has captured his heart.

This Is Balanced Literacy Grades K 6 Book Excerpt:

This is Balanced Literacy: Grades K-6 Students learn to read and write best when their teachers balance literacy instruction. But how do you strike the right balance of skills and knowledge, reading and writing, small and whole group instruction, and direct and dialogic instruction, so that all students can learn to their maximum potential?

Creating Compassionate Kids Essential Conversations to Have with Young Children Book Excerpt:

Young children can surprise us with tough questions. Tominey’s essential guide teaches us how to answer them and foster compassion along the way. If you had to choose one word to describe the world you want children to grow up in, what would it be? Safe? Understanding? Resilient? Compassionate? As parents and caregivers of young children, we know what we want for our children, but not always how to get there. Many children today are stressed by academic demands, anxious about relationships at school, confused by messages they hear in the media, and overwhelmed by challenges at home. Young children look to the adults in their lives for everything. Sometimes we’re prepared... sometimes we’re not. In this book, Shauna Tominey guides parents and caregivers through how to have conversations with young children about a range of topics-from what makes us who we are (e.g., race, gender) to tackling challenges (e.g., peer pressure, divorce, stress) to showing compassion (e.g., making friends, recognizing privilege, being a helper). Talking through these topics in an age-appropriate manner—rather than telling children they are too young to understand—helps children recognize how they feel and how they fit in with the world around them. This book provides sample conversations, discussion prompts, storybook recommendations, and family activities. Dr. Tominey's research-based strategies and practical advice creates dialogues that teach self-esteem, resilience, and empathy: the building blocks for a more compassionate world.
