This book is a must read for parents and caretakers of school age children. Very insightful read that covers from A to Z for the positive ways to help your child succeed as they progress from kindergarden to senior high. I found the book to be "straight to the point" which I really appreciated. This is especially a must read for new parents, it gives them insight of the classroom from the teachers perpective. Teachers/Educator's are truly America's greatest resources. Thank You, I really enjoyed your book.
This is such a good handbook for anyone with school aged children. The information is practical and presented in an easy to read format. Donna gives her professional guidance to ensure both child and parent have a successful and enjoyable educational experience. The humor is an extra bonus . I have 3 grandchildren and their parents will receive a copy of this book!
Great read for any parent with school age children!! Donna's book provides information and advice that will help children become successful and build a strong foundation for life, especially in a year as important as kindergarten. Her True Story section is so relevant to what is happening in schools today. She is on point when she writes about needing a village!! Donna managed to make this an easy read while providing a ton of relevant information.
