Synopsis: How can you tell if your child is ready for kindergarten? What is the social scene like in each grade? How do you get an answer to the question, What did you do in school today? How much homework should your kids really have? In What Really Happens in School, parenting expert Ann LaForge answers all these questions and more, relaying the most up-to-date information on what kids do in school and how they develop year by year. Replete with first-person accounts from teachers and parents, this comprehensive guide shows parents how children develop in each grade from kindergarten through grade five.

Review: Imagine how stressful and overwhelming it would be to switch jobs every year. That's what it feels like for your elementary school student who tackles different tasks and expectations with each new grade. Fortunately, author and parenting expert Ann La Forge knows how to help your child through these annual transitions and hurdles. Offering advice from teachers, principals, school psychologists, and parents, La Forge's brightly written guidebook, What Really Happens in School, is destined to become a dog-eared classic.

Chapter by chapter, grade by grade, La Forge explains what the most important subject is for each grade and why (such as learning to read for first graders and getting organized for fourth graders). She offers grade-specific tips for helping children with homework. Thankfully, La Forge also emphasizes the emotional and social tasks of each grade, letting parents know what to expect and how to help children develop healthy relationships. In her final section, La Forge offers endearing anecdotes and sage advice, such as how to set up a homework station, get your child prepared each day, talk with a teacher, and bring math into everyday life. She even addresses the greatest challenge of all: how to get your child to tell you what really happens in school. --Gail Hudson
