In Parents Make the Difference: Nourishing Literacy Development through Shared book Reading, Susan Voorhees guides parents to conduct enjoyable and productive book reading interactions with their young children. Parents will be informed about language and literacy learning in the early years and how to best engage in before, during, and after shared book reading activities.
Because of their popularity, books in series are great vehicles for fostering literacy among all types of readers, who are almost always adamant about reading every title in the series--in series order. Yet traditional information sources on children's and YA literature include very little about series fiction, so librarians often have difficulty managing this literature. This guide will be a rich resource and time-saver for librarians who work with children. It introduces users to the best and most popular fiction series of today, covering more than 1,000 series with over 10,000 titles, appropriate for elementary readers. Annotations also indicate series and titles accepted by some of the popular electronic reading programs (e.g., Accelerated Reading, Reading First). A numbered list of titles in the series follows.

It’s enough to wake Papa Bear from his spring snooze in the hammock. Mama Bear knows there’s no stopping him as Papa races up to the attic and gets down his old bat, ball, and glove to coach the next Hall of Famer: Brother Bear. But the cub would rather play with his friends. Who wants to practice day and night? Isn’t baseball supposed to be fun? Will Papa Bear put together a winning team and make Brother Bear the star player? And will Sister Bear ever get her turn at bat?
