Read Pam Allyn's posts on the Penguin Blog The books to read aloud to children at the important moments in their lives. In What to Read When, award-winning educator Pam Allyn celebrates the power of reading aloud with children. In many ways, books provide the first opportunity for children to begin to reflectively engage with and understand the world around them. Not only can parents entertain their child and convey the beauty of language through books, they can also share their values and create lasting connections. Here, Allyn offers parents and caregivers essential advice on choosing appropriate titles for their children—taking into account a child’s age, attention ability, gender, and interests— along with techniques for reading aloud effectively. But what sets this book apart is the extraordinary, annotated list of more than three hundred titles suitable for the pivotal moments in a child’s life. With category themes ranging from friendship and journeys to thankfulness, separations, silliness, and spirituality, What to Read When is a one-of-a-kind guide to how parents can best inspire children through reading together. In addition, Pam Allyn includes an indispensable “Reader’s Ladder” section, with recommendations for children at every stage from birth to age ten. With the author’s warm and engaging voice throughout, discussion questions to encourage in-depth conversations, as well as advice on helping kids make the transition to independent reading, this book will help shape thoughtful, creative, and curious children, imparting a love of reading that will last a lifetime.

An illuminating, first-of-its-kind resource to help parents foster a love of writing in their child's life. New educational research reveals that writing is as fundamental to a child's development as reading. But though there are books that promote literacy, no book guides parents in helping their child cultivate a love of writing. In this book, Pam Allyn, a nationally recognized educator and literacy expert, reminds us that writing is not only a key skill but also an essential part of self-discovery and critical to success later in life. Allyn offers the "the five keys" to help kids WRITE-Word Power, Ritual, Independence, Time, and Environment-along with fun, imaginative prompts to inspire and empower children to put their thoughts on the page. A groundbreaking blueprint for developing every child's abilities, Your Child's Writing Life teaches parents how to give a gift that will last a lifetime.

Deftly melding ethnography, cultural history, literary criticism, and autobiographical reflection, A Feeling for Books is at once an engaging study of the Book-of-the-Month Club's influential role as a cultural institution and a profoundly personal meditation about the experience of reading. Janice Radway traces the history of the famous mail-order book club from its controversial founding in 1926 through its evolution into an enterprise uniquely successful in blending commerce and culture. Framing her historical narrative with writing of a more personal sort, Radway reflects on the contemporary role of the Book-of-the-Month Club in American cultural history and in her own life. Her detailed account of the standards and practices employed by the club's in-house editors is also an absorbing story of her interactions with those editors. Examining her experiences as a fourteen-year-old reader of the club's selections and, later, as a professor of literature, she offers a series of rigorously analytical yet deeply personal readings of such beloved novels as Marjorie Morningstar and To Kill a Mockingbird. Rich and rewarding, this book will captivate and delight anyone who is interested in the history of books and in the personal and transformative experience of reading.

Mackie Ramsay’s reading program is Magic! Our son was struggling with reading in second grade when Mackie began working with him for twenty minutes a day. In just six weeks there was not only rapid improvement, but he became very excited about reading for the very first time. He looked forward to each lesson and eagerly learned the ‘secrets’ that gave him access to the mastery of his letters. Now he is eleven and is devouring adult fiction, the more pages the better. He is in the highest reading and spelling programs in his class. I have recommended Mackie to many of our son’s friends with similar results. It is a great gift that Mackie gives – the gift of not only reading well, but of reading with JOY. —Alexandra Kennedy, MA, MFT, psychotherapist and author of Losing a Parent (Harper Collins, 1991). CD Alphabet Adventures included inside the back cover. Lyrics Mackie Ramsay, and MaryLee Sunseri. Music composition by MaryLee Sunseri, singer/ songwriter and the winner 2 American Library Notables, and 4 Parents Choice Awards for young children’s music. The songs on the disc that accompany this book are absolutely entrancing—a perfect way to reinforce the letters for children. Each song is unique and beautifully produced — I find myself singing them all the time! —Barbara Lopez, Music Instructor, Cabrillo College. Composer, “Body Songs.” Published by Harper Collins in the “Health for Life” program, grades K –3.
