    A storm is brewing... Whenever Levi doesn't like the truth, he kinda, sorta makes up other stuff to say. One day his mother explains to him that telling lies will damage the trust of his friends and make him very sad.

    Whenever you tell a lie, your inside sun goes away.
    Then a lying cloud forms, and glooms up your day.
    Each time you tell a lie, another cloud starts to form,
    and before you can stop it from happening, your insides start to storm.

    This book is a great resource to help children understand not only the consequences of telling a lie, but also how one lie can often lead to telling several more.

    READING FOR OUR LIVES

    READING FOR OUR LIVES

    $26.00
    More Info
    An award-winning journalist and literacy advocate provides a clear, step-by-step guide to helping your child thrive as a reader and a learner.

    When her child went off to school, Maya Smart was shocked to discover that a good education in America is a long shot, in ways that few parents fully appreciate. Our current approach to literacy offers too little, too late, and attempting to play catch-up when our kids get to kindergarten can no longer be our default strategy. We have to start at the top. The brain architecture for reading develops rapidly during infancy, and early language experiences are critical to building it. That means parents' work as children's first teachers begins from day one too--and we need deeper knowledge to play our positions.

    Reading for Our Lives challenges the bath-book-bed mantra and the idea that reading aloud to our kids is enough to ensure school readiness. Instead, it gives parents easy, immediate, and accessible ways to nurture language and literacy development from the start. Through personal stories, historical accounts, scholarly research, and practical tips, this book presents the life-and-death urgency of literacy, investigates inequity in reading achievement, and illuminates a path to a true, transformative education for all.
