'Invaluable as a classroom text and practitioner guide. Although many books espouse the importance of parent involvement, this book is unique in emphasizing the enormous responsibility educators have to empower families to engage in partnerships with the school. The book's thesis - that creating home-school partnerships can protect against risk and promote health - will be exciting and challenging to professionals from diverse disciplinary backgrounds. Superbly written, this book provides guidelines that are extremely helpful to practitioners in promoting family-school partnerships.' - Thomas J. Power, PhD, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

'School psychologists are in a great place to develop partnerships between the people at home and the people at school to benefit children's learning. The strategies described in this book were implemented in our school last last year, and we can see the difference. When parents request to continue as partners, when teachers volunteer to participate and recruit other teachers to become involved - that's when we know the processes and systems are working! This book is an important tool for school psychologists, teachers, and administrators.' - De Ann Currin, PhD, Principal, Elliott Elementary School, Lincoln, NE
