This wonderful blog was brought to our attention by the writer, A.J., when he emailed us some good ideas about our website. With the exception of the starred review by the Libraray Journal, A.J. gave our book the most complete and well written review yet:

Iíll bet many fans of this site donít even have children. Itís that fun to check out!

Trelease on Reading
Jim Trelease is the original read-aloud guru. We love Jim Trelease. He has done more for literacy progress than any other individual. His wonderful book, The Read-Aloud Handbook, has sold over two million copies, and is in its fifth updated edition, published in 2001. You can see what will be in his 2006 edition by checking this comprehensive website full of useful information related to literacy. You'll also find lists of children's books plus research on topics such as TV and its effect on reading.
