I have been using “Peak with Books An Early Childhood Resource for Balanced Literacy” for the past couple weeks and love it. I love the layout and the literature-based approach while incorporating different subjects like Math and Science. After using this book with “Blueberries for Sal” and “Ask Mr. Bear”, we’re hooked! This is so much fun and educational at the same time. My very young son really enjoys all the enrichment activities.
I pick one story a week and really “dig” into it with “Peak Books” balanced approach. You will find everything you need for Language Arts in early ed., music, poetry, involvement, reproductions and retelling, innovations and caption books, writing process, print-rich environment, parent involvement, online resources, etc. Overall, I wish I found this resource sooner but am grateful that I have it now and not later!
