Description : PERFECT FOR THE EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATOR, CARE GIVER AND PARENTS ALIKE, Peak With Books shows how to use popular children's literature to build reading, writing, and cognitive skills in an inquiry-based environment. Instead of using a "skill and drill" approach, the authors employ conversations, questions, and, meaning-based activities to stimulate children's curiosity, confidence, and thirst for knowledge. The authors' balanced literacy program teaches strong reading, writing, and critical thinking skills. To develop those skills, each chapter's central storybook is accompanied by strategies that employ art, music, drama, finger rhymes, poetry, math and science activities. Graphics and children's presentations illustrate how research and discovery through fiction can enliven whole-class and individually directed projects.

Description : Sometimes hilarious, sometimes horrifying, consistently captivating, Not So Much the Fall stunningly intertwines the journeys in Casey's life that lead her toward wholeness. On the road to Portland, Oregon, fleeing Memphis in the wake of her mother's death - and on the road back to Memphis nine years later, hoping to see her beloved dogs once more before her lover throws her out - Casey has time to contemplate life according to herself, karmic coincidence, and Alfred Hitchcock. Through a fog of angst and chemically-induced confusion, she glimpses the consequences of her life's actions - some borne of naive trust and love, some of defiant disregard of ominous signs and resistance to living by the basic rules of honesty and integrity.
Description : In Fever, music critic Tim Riley argues that while political and athletic role models have let us down, rock and roll has provided enduring role models for men and women. From Elvis Presley to Tina Turner to Bruce Springsteen to Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, Riley makes a persuasive case that rock and roll, far from the corrosive force that conservative critics make it out to be, has instead been a positive influence in people's lives, laying out gender-defying role models far more enduringly than movies, TV, or "real life."
Description : Castles in the Air is an attempt to open discussions on some often overlooked issues which affect education, particularly in rural and township government schools. In order to make it a truly South African drama, I have drawn from oral tradition by including songs and poems which play an integral part in traditional storytelling. There are many folksongs which were included in earlier versions, but I decided to remove them in the final version because I did not intend to write a musical. There are also some praise poems that I composed for the main character and his father. I studied oral tradition, and I am confident that the praise poems I composed have all the qualities of the real praise poems, and because I could not compose them in English, I, therefore, wrote them in isiZulu with translations in the glossary at the end.
