Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is...a fantastic and much needed book for undergraduate students and teachers. The numerous practical examples and clear manner that this book is written in will make it a dynamite resource for educators. I think the strength is in the unique connection to literacy. I would definitely use this book in an appropriate undergraduate class and with educators in graduate classes and workshops."

"I liked that the text focused on all areas of the literacy curriculum, not just the areas that easily lend themselves to integrating technology. There is a good balance of instructional techniques for children and resources for the teacher. The examples that were given were illustrative and effective."
