Witzig, actionreich, geheimnisvoll: Vier Helden und eine ganz besondere Schule An einem streng geheimen Ort, auf einem 70 Meter hohen Felsen, befindet sich Summerstone – das Phobinasium – eine ebenso exklusive wie geheimnisvolle Bildungseinrichtung. Verschwiegenheit ist eine Aufnahmebedingung. Die Lehrmethoden der Direktorin, Mrs Wellington, sind einzigartig. Und nur wenige Menschen wissen, was hier tatsächlich vor sich geht: Hier können Kinder das Fürchten ... verlernen! Madeleine, Lucy, Theo und Garrison haben Angst! Angst vor Spinnen, Insekten & Co., vor engen Räumen, vor dem Tod und sogar vor Wasser. Da kommt es schon mal vor, dass Madeleine nur mit Spraydose und Moskitonetz bewaffnet das Haus verlässt. Oder dass Theo stündlich überprüfen muss, ob seine Familie noch lebt. Es gibt nur einen Ausweg: das geheimnisvolle Phobinasium. Doch dort erwarten sie nicht nur schweißtreibende Prüfungen. Um endlich furchtlos zu werden, müssen die Vier das unglaubliche Rätsel von Summerstone lösen. Und das stellt sie vor ungeahnte Herausforderungen ...

This is how storyteller, librarian, and all-around jokester Rob Reid opens his delightful new book, Something Funny Happened at the Library. Wouldn't it be great if kids came home from the library holding their sides, eager to pass on the funny things they heard in the library that day? According to Reid, the best way to get the attention of young people is to make them laugh. From easy-to-win-over preschoolers to unimpressed teens, this book will serve as your personal humor coach for even the toughest audiences out there. With tricks of the trade on how to warm up an audience, choose age-appropriate material, use facial and vocal expressions to lure them in, and select props, you're on your way to something very funny! Young children won't be able to hold in their giggles after such programs as "The World's Worst Ice-Cream Story," and intermediate school-age kids will love to take part in book theme parties in honor of Captain Underpants or such special celebrations as "Boo Ha-Ha!" Even those middle- and high-school students, once convinced to participate in "Comedy Club" (a program that combines reading and stand-up) or spoonerisms (a wordplay game), will be rolling in the aisles. To enrich all of these programs, Reid also includes a funny reader's theater script, tips on how to host lively library tours and school visits, and even rap songs that extol the virtues of reading and the library! A complete resource for getting children and young adults snickering and having fun in the stacks with innovative programming that uses humor, Something Funny helps you to connect with children and young adults and, along the way, make the library the hippest place in town!

Summer reading loss accounts for roughly 80 percent of the rich/poor reading achievement gap. Yet far too little attention is given to this pressing problem. This timely volume now offers not only a comprehensive review of what is known about summer reading loss but also provides reliable interventions and guidance. Written by acknowledged experts and researchers on reading, remedial reading, and special education, this collection describes multiple models of innovative summer reading and book distribution initiatives as well as research-based guidelines for planning a successful summer reading program, including tips on book selection, distribution methods, and direction for crucial follow-up. Most important, the authors clearly show how schools and communities can see greater academic gains for students from low-income families using the methods described in this book than they can from much more costly interventions.

Teaching students specific literacy skills is important--but equally critical, and often overlooked, is giving them the time and opportunity to read actual texts. Bringing together leading scholars, this book focuses on how teachers can improve both the quality and quantity of reading experiences in K-12 classrooms. Essential topics include factors that make reading tasks more or less productive for different types of learners, ways to balance independent reading with whole-class and small-group instruction, how to choose appropriate texts, and the connections between reading engagement and proficiency. The relevant research literature is reviewed, and exemplary practices and programs are described.
