Reading to Make a Difference

Lester L. Laminack, Katie Kelly


Books as bridges enable readers to speak freely, think deeply, and take action.  In Reading to Make a Difference, Lester and Katie build on the work of Rudine Sims Bishop, extending the notion of books as windows, mirrors, and doors. They show you how to move beyond exposing your students to diverse children’s literature by offering an instructional framework that is applicable to any topic and can be adapted to your own classroom or community.
Words That Sing, Pre-K

Irene Fountas, Gay Su Pinnell


Words That Sing is an illustrated collection of poems, songs, and rhymes that will fill children with language, ideas, and imagery, which will help them use and enjoy the oral and written word. Enlarged charts make it possible for children to “read” a much more complex text than they could independently, enabling each child—regardless of reading level—to benefit from the many values and goals that poetry brings to the classroom.
