Last Child in the Woods, by Richard Louv
A great book written all about how today’s kids are suffering from nature-deficit disorder. In today’s tech-savvy world, kids are missing something, and it’s important for the world that we renew their interest in nature.
A book I read over and over again. We can learn a lot about talking so our kids will listen and really listening, even when they appear to be saying things that upset us.
A book about puberty. Made for ages 7-up, this book has great illustrations and explanations that explain puberty and all that goes with it with sensible, open-minded explanations. Highly recommend!
A follow-up book to It’s So Amazing, made for ages 9-12. Great series and really opens up a sometimes sensitive topic with humor and candor.
How to help students progress in their reading comprehension? This handy book helps parents ask the right questions to students. Students learn these important reading strategies in school, but it’s good for parents to be aware also.
