This book was very helpful when I stayed up at night worrying about my little girl going to kindergarten. I wanted so much to be involved, and wondered how to get the school to agree. I was able to read the whole book in one weekend, and was so ready for her starting school. I believe that there are more parents who want to be involved in their school. This book will show you how. It is a 'must have' for new kindergarten parents. Take it from me!
This book was full of helpful information about asserting my child's rights in school. It was short and easy to read, yet had many internet websites to find more information about parenting. After reading this book, I am ready to become an active partner in my child's schooling. I will not be intimidated by the school people. It has worked so far! I wish this book would end up on Oprah! She would love it!
