This remarkable book by the author of NY Times bestseller, The Trouble with Boys, is a way for parents and educators themselves to ensure that students are learning the requisite skills without gaps and on time. Her focus ranges from the pre-school skills and strategies for introducing them to the much more complex issues of literacy and math. Parents are enabled to be informed consumers and advocates for their children. Bottom line: they are empowered to be positive partners in the growth of their most valuable treasures – their own children and the other children in their sphere of influence.
