Praise for Preparing for Disaster:

"...This book is a must for every administrator of a child care program."

--Suzanne Gellens, MS, Executive Director, Florida Association for the Education of Young Children

"This is an absolute must for anyone who cares for children. This resource very precisely spells out all the measures that need to be taken into consideration for being proactive as well as dealing with the aftermath of a crisis. The forms in the last chapter make it easier to be well prepared to handle any disaster in an organized and efficient manner."

--Jody Martin, Vice President of Education and Training, Creme de la Creme

"Being prepared could not be more important! Katrina, wildfires, tornadoes, and the BP oil spill have taught us this. Calm, relaxed, prepared staff are essential! "

--Marcy Guddemi, PhD, Executive Director, Gesell Institute of Human Development

"These companion books [Preparing for Disaster and After the Crisis], based on hard-learned lessons from the Katrina disaster, should be read by all entrusted with the physical and emotional well-being of our youngest and most vulnerable children."

--Marian Wright Edelman, President, Children's Defense Fund

Praise for After the Crisis:

"This unprecedented resource book is very informative and user friendly. This will certainly give teachers the tools to help children understand various disasters that are possible as well as heal better if they experienced one."

--Jody Martin, Vice President of Education and Training, Creme de la Creme

"Excellent collection of targeted children’s books! Every center should have this book."

--Marcy Guddemi, PhD, Executive Director, Gesell Institute of Human Development

"...This book is relevant for every teacher, whether the [children in the classroom have] experienced a disaster or seen devastation on television."

--Suzanne Gellens, Executive Director, Florida Association for the Education of Young Children

Praise for The Portfolio Book:

"This book provides a relatively simple step-by-step process for using a portfolio assessment in everyday teaching practices. This easy-to-read book is both comprehensive and feasible for preschool and primary teachers."
