The dolls in these stories act and talk just like real people - that is, when their mistress, young Marcella, or other humans are not there to see them. Raggedy Ann has charmed millions with her warm and optimistic outlook and unflappable approach to difficulties, while Raggedy Andy has pleased fans with his adventurous spirit and compassionate nature. As Gruelle’s granddaughter said, “[These stories contain] nothing to cause fright, glorify mischief, excuse malice, or condone cruelty.” All the original twenty-four stories from Johnny Gruelle’s two books are included here, and all are guaranteed to delight and inspire. Stories include: “Raggedy Ann Learns a Lesson,” “Raggedy Ann and the Washing,” “Raggedy Ann and the Kite,” “Raggedy Ann Rescues Fido,” “Raggedy Ann and the Painter,” “Raggedy Ann’s Trip on the River,” “Raggedy Ann and the Strange Dolls,” “Raggedy Ann and the Kittens,” “Raggedy Ann and the Fairies’ Gift,” “Raggedy Ann and the Chickens,” “Raggedy Ann and the Mouse,” “Raggedy Ann’s New Sisters,” “How Raggedy Andy Came,” “The Nursery Dance,” “The Spinning Wheel,” “The Taffy Pull,” “The Rabbit Chase,” “The New Tin Gutter,” “Doctor Raggedy Andy,” “Raggedy Andy’s Smile,” “The Wooden Horse,” “Making Angels in the Snow,” and “The Singing Shell.” Johnny Gruelle (1880-1938), the much loved creator of the brother and sister rag dolls Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy, started his career as a newspaper cartoonist. By beating out fifteen hundred entrants in a comic drawing contest sponsored by the New York Herald, he earned a $2,000 prize and an extended contract to provide a weekly installment of his cartoon Mr. Twee Deedle. In addition to designing the Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls, he soon began writing and illustrating make believe tales and adventure stories for children. 1. Language: English.

`This wonderful book contains everything you need to know to teach maths to children in the nursery and infant school. It is incredibly thorough, very well thought out and with sufficient detail to satisfy every need from a student writing an essay and planning a lesson, to classroom teachers and those on a masters course. The style is clear, illustrations are thought-provoking and the whole structure of the book demonstrates an in-depth understanding of what early years classroom teachers really want to know.... This book deserves to be read by everyone in early years education because it is so utterly practical - yet also analytical with plenty of cross-references to both research and resources. Great stuff!' - Primary Maths & Science `This book is very thorough, practical and accessible..... I think this book deserves to be on primary bookshelves to be dipped into, because it does encourage good reflective practice and suggests ways of tackling problems effectively. I especially like the way it recognizes that at all times we are dealing with people: parents, children, teachers and other educational professionals' - Mathematics Teaching In this comprehensive study of mathematics curriculum management in nursery and infant schools, the author highlights and clarifies the different elements that have been identified in recent reports as `good practice' in managing the teaching and learning of mathematics in the early years of schooling, with illustrations from practice. The book examines the formulation of a mathematics policy, the role of the mathematics co-ordinator, resource management, partnerships with parents, planning processes, classroom and lesson management, assessment, managing differentiation, record-keeping and reporting. The author offers many practical suggestions for managing the active teaching and learning of mathematics in the classroom.
Presented more as a fun and easy-to-read novel than the actual academic book it really is, Memoirs of a Happy Teacher strikes at the core of all the problems in school today. Many of these problems underlie those that are later manifested in our society. As Roy Andersen recounts his experiences creating a sound platform for an 18- month-old to learn, to helping bullied children overcome their problems in learning, to explaining to a dyslexic student of 17 why he never was truly dyslexic, Roy exposes the general misunderstandings behind why children really fail in school today. As the reader is carried through personal interviews, village hall meetings, evening school talks, and battle-zone classrooms, they encounter the worries, questions, and problems faced by teachers, children, and their parents--all struggling to overcome an educational service that never seems to get it right. This book is for any parent who is really interested in the struggles and dangers awaiting their child in school, and for teachers of all levels from nursery to university, as it unveils a new and yet highly tested teaching methodology purposely designed for the 21st Century Child. After all, stars, marks, grades, and final examinations are simply a question of the child keeping up with each lesson. However, what we too often fail to understand is that the stresses we incur and unwittingly pass on to our child, when we argue or are too tired and too bored with life, not only disturbs their mind, but also their grades in school. For the mind of the student today is too seldom a happy one, as it struggles to survive in a world that is far more toxic than that which we lived in when we were children, and so can too little understand or know how to deal with. This is a book that shows you how.
