Zum Autor Don Norman ist emeritierter Professor für Kognitionswissenschaften. Er lehrte an der University of California in San Diego und der Northwest University in Illinois.

Authored by two passionate psychologists and educators, Book Smart: How to Develop and Support Successful, Motivated Readers is a how-to guide rich with stories, lessons, activities, and ideas aimed at supporting reading development and addressing the broad range of interpersonal, social, emotional, and motivational skills that can be fostered by reading with young children.

This journey begins with a discussion of oral language and early reading skills and then moves into early writing attempts, story comprehension, general knowledge development, and social-emotional growth. This book will help parents bring the joy of reading into the home.

Böse – böser – Mr Gum! Mr Gum hasst Kinder, Tiere, Spaß und Mais mit Butter und Salz. Dafür liebt er es, lange im Bett zu dösen und böse zu gucken. Er lebt in einem völlig heruntergekommenen Haus – sein Garten allerdings ist der schönste der ganzen Stadt. Das liegt an der bösen Fee, die in Mr Gums Badewanne wohnt und ihm mit einer Pfanne eins überzieht, wenn er seinen Garten nicht pflegt. Das alles wäre ja in Ordnung, wenn nicht eines Tages ein Hund auftauchen und den Garten beim Spielen verwüsten würde. Um die Fee ruhigzustellen und den Hund für immer loszuwerden, beschließt Mr Gum, das Tier zu vergiften. Davon bekommt das kleine Mädchen Polly Wind, und für sie ist klar: Sie muss dem bösen Mr Gum die Stirn bieten!
