It's original. It's fun. It's 450 terrific teaching ideas that are based upon the latest research on how young children become good readers. It connects 90 of the best children's books to early learning centers--science, nature, math, art, music, movement, cooking and circle time. Each book is "s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d" five ways with lively learning activities that heighten reading readiness and sharpen comprehension skills, too. And it's so easy to use!
