Award for Linking Language:

Award for Science Adventures:


Praise for Partnering with Parents:

"An unusually fine collection of family workshops dramatically organized to include children as well as parents. While their children are engaged in interesting activities, parents are developing an understanding of child growth and ability. Importantly, what they experience can be transferred to the home."

—David P. Weikart, founder and president emeritus of High/Scope Educational Research Foundation


Praise for Science Adventures:

"I like the science content standards and process skills are included. Arrangement by age makes lessons easy to apply. Lessons use common items that are available to teachers. Nice index in back."

—2008 Directors' Choice Judge
