Description : Read Pam Allyn's posts on the Penguin Blog The books to read aloud to children at the important moments in their lives. In What to Read When, award-winning educator Pam Allyn celebrates the power of reading aloud with children. In many ways, books provide the first opportunity for children to begin to reflectively engage with and understand the world around them. Not only can parents entertain their child and convey the beauty of language through books, they can also share their values and create lasting connections. Here, Allyn offers parents and caregivers essential advice on choosing appropriate titles for their children—taking into account a child’s age, attention ability, gender, and interests— along with techniques for reading aloud effectively. But what sets this book apart is the extraordinary, annotated list of more than three hundred titles suitable for the pivotal moments in a child’s life. With category themes ranging from friendship and journeys to thankfulness, separations, silliness, and spirituality, What to Read When is a one-of-a-kind guide to how parents can best inspire children through reading together. In addition, Pam Allyn includes an indispensable “Reader’s Ladder” section, with recommendations for children at every stage from birth to age ten. With the author’s warm and engaging voice throughout, discussion questions to encourage in-depth conversations, as well as advice on helping kids make the transition to independent reading, this book will help shape thoughtful, creative, and curious children, imparting a love of reading that will last a lifetime.

Description : Marilynne Robinson has built a sterling reputation as a writer of sharp, subtly moving prose, not only as a major American novelist, but also as a rigorous thinker and incisive essayist. In When I Was a Child I Read Books she returns to and expands upon the themes which have preoccupied her work with renewed vigor. In "Austerity as Ideology," she tackles the global debt crisis, and the charged political and social political climate in this country that makes finding a solution to our financial troubles so challenging. In "Open Thy Hand Wide" she searches out the deeply embedded role of generosity in Christian faith. And in "When I Was a Child," one of her most personal essays to date, an account of her childhood in Idaho becomes an exploration of individualism and the myth of the American West. Clear-eyed and forceful as ever, Robinson demonstrates once again why she is regarded as one of our essential writers.

Description : Mackie Ramsay’s reading program is Magic! Our son was struggling with reading in second grade when Mackie began working with him for twenty minutes a day. In just six weeks there was not only rapid improvement, but he became very excited about reading for the very first time. He looked forward to each lesson and eagerly learned the ‘secrets’ that gave him access to the mastery of his letters. Now he is eleven and is devouring adult fiction, the more pages the better. He is in the highest reading and spelling programs in his class. I have recommended Mackie to many of our son’s friends with similar results. It is a great gift that Mackie gives – the gift of not only reading well, but of reading with JOY. —Alexandra Kennedy, MA, MFT, psychotherapist and author of Losing a Parent (Harper Collins, 1991). CD Alphabet Adventures included inside the back cover. Lyrics Mackie Ramsay, and MaryLee Sunseri. Music composition by MaryLee Sunseri, singer/ songwriter and the winner 2 American Library Notables, and 4 Parents Choice Awards for young children’s music. The songs on the disc that accompany this book are absolutely entrancing—a perfect way to reinforce the letters for children. Each song is unique and beautifully produced — I find myself singing them all the time! —Barbara Lopez, Music Instructor, Cabrillo College. Composer, “Body Songs.” Published by Harper Collins in the “Health for Life” program, grades K –3.

Description : A Goth girl with an attitude problem, Elizabeth Davis must learn to control her anger before it destroys her. Emily Delgado appears to be a smart, sweet girl with a normal life, but as depression clutches at her, she struggles to feel normal. Both girls are in Ms. Diaz's English class, where they connect to the words of Emily Dickinson. Both are hovering on the edge of an emotional precipice. One of them will attempt suicide. And with Dickinson's poetry as their guide, both girls must conquer their personal demons to ever be happy. In an emotionally taut novel that is equal parts literary and commercial, with a richly diverse cast of characters, readers will relish in the poetry of Emily Dickinson and be completely swept up in the turmoil of two girls fighting for their lives.
