"Mimi's materials are excellent ways for young children, teachers, and parents to stimulate and enrich language and literacy growth during early childhood years. Children need to touch and hold the artifacts of literacy and to be exposed to high quality literature that creates a sense of curiosity and wonderment about themselves, each other, and their expanding worlds."

Dr. Daniel Reed Meier
Assistant Professor of Elementary Education
Ph.D., Language and Literacy
San Francisco State University
Author of LEARNING IN SMALL MOMENTS and more.

HERE'S THE STORY: USING NARRATIVE TO PROMOTE YOUNG CHILDREN'S LANGUAGE AND LITERACY LEARNING, the newest publication by Dr. Daniel Reed Meier.

You can purchase these books though Teacher's College Press.
