"What a wonderful groundwork these children will take into middle school, high school, and beyond. It is of such methods taught in elementary schools that true scholars are made.

This study shows us, step-by-step, ways to employ the boundless energy that children bring to our classrooms as well as known strategies to make them successful." - Catholic Library World
"Bottom line: Amazing ideas, creative strategies, and practical tips make this book a candidate for the best professional book list of the year. Get it; read it; try its ideas." - Teacher Librarian
