Listen, Learn, and Limber Up

Listen Learn and Limber Up

Picture books are more than colorful images paired with words. Great picture books insist that the reader and the listener actively play and talk. Learning is made dynamic when you add dancing, imagination, and verbal responses. Movement makes literacy fun!

Others enjoy learning about how mixed motivations, conflicting interests, and human error conspire to produce outcomes no one could predict. Still others like the spy tale as a container for a study of human personalities and morality. Here are some riveting spy novels for every reader.
