About the eBook

"A delightful book. . . . It is readable, convincing, and useful for communicating with children and engaging them in fruitful conversations. I would recommend this book to anyone who has the good fortune to be working with young children."
-Marilyn Segal, Director of Academics
Mailman Segal Institute for Early Childhood Studies
Nova Southeastern University, FL

"Even though strong parent-teacher partnerships benefit children, very little attention is usually given to training teachers to tap into this powerful resource. Kaltman′s practical tips make for a very valuable resource."
-Ruth R. Kennedy, Assistant Professor
Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania
