Here you will find a host of relatable characters and situations. The stories include prize-winning competition entries, extracts from novels and short excerpts that have gone on to become novels.

How do you live as an adult in the modern world? Google everything of course! And what about dealing with your partner’s depression? Find him a hobby and then sit back when it takes off. And if you’re in your mid-30s and a life partner seems like an unachievable goal, you’ll need dating apps and a solid dose of motherly advice, right? Ten Little Starts is the ideal companion for a flight or train ride. Escape into different worlds for a couple of hours and enjoy.

Teachers know that poetry is a great deal more than just an add-on or an "enrichment" to be fitted into the curriculum at a spare moment. And they are aware of how positively children respond to and learn from reading and writing poetry. The key is to know where to start and how to develop teaching ideas that make poetry a natural and enjoyable part of classroom work. The text is organized around strategies for using poetry. There are thirty-three detailed strategies spelled out and nearly three hundred brief suggestions. Sidebars contain information on such topics as criteria and a checklist for selecting the kinds of poetry children like, and descriptions of poetry forms.

With a slender design and appealing art, Cullinan and Galda present a thought provoking discussion on how children can read to respond, read to learn, and read to enjoy. This text provides evaluation criteria for selecting superior children's books, rather than listing thousands of titles and synopses. Booklists direct readers to quality literature, and extended discussions of selected titles demonstrate the selection criteria. Multicultural literature is discussed throughout the text, with a separate chapter on more specific multicultural issues. Numerous teaching ideas, many of which are contributed by classroom teachers, provide practical applications. This is a book for teachers, stressing the use of good books in a literature based curriculum.

"WHATEVER SHIRLEY OR NICK TELL YOU-BELIEVE THEM." - Naomi Shihab Nye How do we read a poem? What can we teach from a poem we love? How can we name what poets do in order to inform our writing, our teaching? In their staff development work with teachers, Nick Flynn and Shirley McPhillips have often encountered these and similar questions. This book invites preservice and inservice teachers, staff developers - anyone who wants to make a lasting place for poetry in their own and their students' lives - into many of these same primary through middle school classrooms for an up-close look at several thoughtful, rigorous, poetry inquiries. Each chapter begins with a mentor poem as the centerpiece for discussion, followed by a short narrative of ways the authors view their world through that chapter's particular poetic "lens." The authors then walk the reader into a classroom writer's workshop where, through vignettes, conversations, and carefully designed mini-lessons, that chapter's key element of poetic practice is being studied over time. Other aspects that will help teachers in designing and conducting inquiry around mentor poems include:mini-lessons that take students through an inquiry from launch to in-depth extensions;illustrations of student writing samples in the "try it" stages, successive drafts, and crafted poems;words, stories, and examples of best-loved poets that inspire and instruct us in our own thinking and teaching;appendixes that include various types of book lists, charts, conference transcripts, and additional poems. A Note Slipped Under the Door will show how you might help your student writers let the poems they love teach them what they need to know, and build a writing life that includes finding and crafting their own.
