The Adventures of Jonny Plumb is the fantastical and funny story of a young orphan boy suddenly endowed with very special powers. Jonny's life changes dramatically when he's taken into foster care by the wealthy and extremely beautiful Lady Kathleen Hunter -- and comes under the vigilant eye of Nanny Noo. Jonny's adventures begin when he finds the mysterious Golden Globe that shifts shapes and holds many secrets. This magical orb takes Jonny on all kinds of amazing and jaw-dropping adventures, high into the furthest regions of space and deep into an underwater world full of rowdy Sea Life -- who bubble up from Jonny's bathtub drain to join in silly songs. These include Wall Eyed Wally and his three baby octopuses Stench, Carcass, and Harpoon; five young dolphins, Oink, Jube, Faraway, Blue Sky One Eye, and Sloppy Botty; Porka the Orca, Legs the Crab, and many more. Each of the children's stories has its own individual adventure and life lesson. They are packed with trials, mayhem, suspense, mystery, action, and adventure. With everyday situations that kids must face in the real world. Now throw in a little fantasy. Now you have charming tales that will enthrall young audiences. The perfect Storytime book series for both boys and girls ages 6-10 Grades: 1-5. 'I liked this book because of the educational theme, too. Jonny's philanthropic mission speaks about the human angle. It's important to have children's story books with a strong theme. Also, children are highly imaginative and they always think outside the box. These types of stories also aid in developing their imagination and thought.' --Mamta 'I read this on holiday, whilst lazing around the pool and finished it in three sittings. Uplifting, with funny, imaginative characters. Jonny is the sweetest little boy and all the while, you lose yourself in his magical world - and I'm a grown-up - well sort of!' --Linda 'I laughed and cried with Jonny and my young nephew and niece just adored him and all his wonderful friends! Written with verve and obvious empathy by Kim Wheeler, who quite clearly still has the heart of a child..... Thank goodness this is the first of a series - can't wait to read the next one!' --Jessica Meyer, Editor

'Want to become a more effective teacher of comprehension and strategic reading processes? Get this book! It is filled with rich descriptions of effective instruction that can be tailored to fit specific classroom circumstances and student populations. Without a doubt, this is the best book on the market for teachers who strive to provide reading instruction that makes a difference. I have used the first edition in classes, and I'm excited about using the updated and improved second edition with my students. It is appropriate for a range of undergraduate and graduate courses in reading.'--Linda B. Gambrell, PhD, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Education, Clemson University 'This is a compelling and powerful book that masterfully grounds strategic processing instruction in both theory and research. It is an excellent resource to help classroom teachers and literacy specialists develop the extensive knowledge base needed to self-regulate their practice. New chapters in the second edition assist teachers in planning and organizing instruction and implementing it within an RTI framework. The discussions in these chapters are essential because they help bridge the gap between research and practice.'--Lynn E. Shanahan, PhD, Department of Learning and Instruction, University at Buffalo, State University of New York 'This second edition takes an already excellent book and makes it even better! With a rich research base and real-life classroom examples, the book shows teachers how to take on the challenge of teaching strategic processes in reading, including how to do so within RTI frameworks. Perfect for teacher study groups and master’s courses, this comprehensive book guides teachers step by step to create motivated, strategic readers.'--Mariam Jean Dreher, PhD, Department of Teaching, Learning, Policy, and Leadership, University of Maryland, College Park 'The professional literature often downplays the challenge of effectively teaching comprehension strategies. Thank goodness we have Almasi and Fullerton's splendid book to support our efforts. This text is an indispensable part of my graduate teaching; it provides a coherent model for developing and delivering strategy instruction. I particularly appreciate the excellent sections on the explicit teaching of strategies and the scaffolding of students' learning, as well as the annotated lesson plans. The second edition supplements these features with expanded information on RTI. Most notably, this book is solidly research based and not just a compendium of recommended practices. It is a powerful, comprehensive resource that can be adapted for diverse audiences and purposes.'--Rachel Brown, PhD, Director, Literacy Master's Programs, Syracuse University

Letters to a Young Teacher

“Kozol’s love for his students is as joyful and genuine as his critiques of the system are severe. He doesn’t pull punches.” — Washington Post “[Charts] the positive tension between his lifelong indignation and the renewable joy of being in the classroom, something essential to all good teaching.” — Los Angeles Times “In lovingly supportive letters to a young woman on her first job as a first grade teacher, Kozol brings us heartwarming stories of the magic of kids who delight in words like ‘wiggly’ and ‘wobbly,’ ‘bamboozle’ and ‘persnickety’–and who could resist a child called Pineapple? This remarkable book is a testament to teachers who not only respect and advocate for children on a daily basis but who are the necessary guardians of the spirit. Every citizen who cares about the future of our children ought to read this.” —Eric Carle, author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar “What a wonderful book! Anyone who cares about rebuilding our public education system should read it. I could not put it down!” —Linda Darling-Hammond, Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Education, Stanford University “This book cuts to the heart of the matter of what it means to be a teacher today. The truth about testing, vouchers and their impact on public schools–it’s all captured here. But here, too, we also experience the exhilaration of putting together lesson plans, the joys of comforting children, and the anxiety of a teacher’s first days in school. Francesca’s journey will leave you hopeful for our nation’s children.” —Reg Weaver, President, National Education Association “Jonathan Kozol’s advice to the teacher Francesca shows all the qualities that make him the nation’s wisest and boldest and most clear-headed writer on education: his passion for teaching, his respect for students, his refusal to submit to the stifling demands of the educational bureaucrats in and out of government. He tells personal classroom stories with a refreshing honesty, and conveys the excitement and joy of preparing a new generation to remake the world. Teachers, students, parents alike will find this book inspiring.” —Howard Zinn, author of A People’s History of the United States “In these letters Kozol establishes a sense of trust with his readers exactly as he did with his students in Boston many years ago. His wisdom and humility come through so clearly that you have to wonder why everyone who works with children and teachers cannot be as clear-thinking and genuine. This book is a tutorial in humanity from one of America’s greatest educators and social commentators. It should be read by every new teacher in our public schools.” —David Berliner, author of Manufactured Crisis: Myths, Fraud, and the Attack on America’s Public Schools “With Letters to a Young Teacher, Jonathan Kozol reminds us that teaching remains a wonderful and essential calling. Committed, gifted teachers who recognize the ' inherent value' of every child are needed now more than ever. I hope this inspiring book will spark a new generation of teacher-leaders heeding Kozol's passionate call and example.” —Marian Wright Edelman, President, Children's Defense Fund “In Letters to a Young Teacher, Kozol’s tone is conversational but his challenge to all of us is urgent. On a range of educational questions–segregation, vouchers, testing, and the profession of teaching–his perspective is informed by a gentle perplexity that sometimes spikes into outrage. ‘How can this be?’ he seems to ask us. ‘How can we allow this to happen to our children?’ The more people who read him, the greater our chances of climbing out of the dark hole into which American education has fallen–or been pushed.&#8221
