About the Author

Dr. Guinevere Durham is a retired educator of thirty years. She writes from three perspectives; an elementary principal, a classroom teacher, and a mother of six.


I am a mother of a first grader. My son has struggled with reading in a classroom that has been very well structured. This book has helped us recognize that his learning style is different and we needed to accommodate his style. We have taken many of the tips and ideas from the book which has helped him advance further than we expected in a short time. This book is a must read for all teachers and especially parents. -- Nicole Sheffield, mother
I am always looking for educational ideas for my grandbabies in their development. 5-Skills has given me a better understanding of how their little minds work. I love the ideas and examples that are shown not only in school but in the home and in real life. I now have a supply of activities to use with the 2 and 4 year olds when I babysit. If you want to be productive in the education of your grandbabies education - this is the book for you! -- Susan Hendricks, grandmother
This book not only teaches my son how to learn, but also shows me how to teach my son and cater to his learning style. The "Awareness" chapter is a MUST read for all homeschooling parents. It shows the signs to look for growth and development concerns when teaching with technology. -- Crystal Slosson, homeschooling mom
As a teacher I strongly believe every parent should be required to read this book. It doesn't matter if their child will be going to a public, private, or home school situation. This is valuable information that will give children and parents an edge. Most parents don't know how their children learn. They try to help them using their own learning style and then get upset when it doesn't work The strategies and activities in the book are real life application skills. They are things every parent can do. -- The Musings of a Book Addict, blog
The day I started reading Five Skills, I used some of Durham's tips to help me explain summarizing to my daughter.The tips helped tremendously. I can't think of a better recommendation. Five Skills is a great resource. -- The Zen of Motherhood, blog
