Cathy's book is a MUST READ for anyone who works with young readers! Not only does she reference the research supporting what she's suggesting, but she also offers practical ideas that can be put into play immediately.

Well written and a quick, easy read. No new information, however. A lot of the same ideas from The Sisters.
