  • Format and info Is Perfect for Preschoolers!

    I bought all from the Backyard Series to read to my 4 1/2 year old Grandson. He is enraptured by each one. The second person format is intriguing to him and the repeated structure from each book (what you looked like when you were young, how you grew, what you eat, what is dangerous to you) allows him to anticipate and ask questions before the answers appear. At each ending, "But if you look like this, or this,... Then you are not a ______," he announces ,"You're a human child!" Non-fiction is underutilized in reading programs in schools and it especially interests boys as opposed to fiction. Reading programs are trying to catch up with this research finding. My experience with this series and my grandson supports that finding. I first used "Are You a Snail" in my fourth grade classroom as a mentor text (along with several other children's picture books) to teach non fiction writing.

A young boy named Sam is excited about Christmas, like any other child during the holiday. But this is where the similarity with many other Christmas story ends. The focus is not on “Santa”, or what gifts Sam is going to get. The story centers on caring, doing for others in need, and Jesus. Sam’s mother puts a beautiful silver box on the mantle. All she will tell him is that it is a special gift called a Sparkle Box. She explains that it must first be filled before it can be opened. Each time he asks, he is told they must put more things in it. Throughout the book, the fam...

    chris48  from New York, NY, Rating:5.0

    Great book for tween and teenagers who are interested in African American history. A GIRL CALLED BOY will enable all who read it to come away with a greater understanding of American history. Great book for middle school and high school readers, especially during Black history month. Exceptionally well written.

    As a lady of 47,I have been disabled for 15 yrs. It's very hard to have so much taken away due to illness. Finding a challenging hobby helps to not only feel as if u can still b productive but enjoy seeing Ur handy work and share a special gift with those special people n Ur lives.
