Mary Hynes Berry's literature-based teaching methods will enliven and engage your classroom learning community. Her book is a MUST purchase for every early childhood teaching institution, educator, and parent.

Mary Hynes Berry's techniques for teaching through literature have formed a foundation for the way I present literature in my classroom. Her methods allow me to engage my students, enhance their critical thinking skills, and reach multiple curricular domains. She shares too many favorite teaching strategies to mention here!. She will leave you with inquiry being a habit of mind and with a book resource that will allow you to have significant impact on your children's learning trajectories.

Don't Leave the Story in the Book: Using Literature to Guide Inquiry in Early Childhood Classrooms (Early Childhood Education)

This book is a must have reference for early childhood educators and parents.

When you have one in your hand, how do you get the most out it?

Her book describes her secrets for bring able to build curriculum - language, math, science, social - out of the best of children's lit. She also helps us with criteria and examples of the best literature, fiction and non-fiction. This is a valuable tool for anyone working with young children.
