Between the Lions®, the Emmy Award-winning PBS KIDS program, brings the joy of reading into millions of homes. From their home at the public library, lion cubs Lionel and Leona and their parents Theo and Cleo introduce children to basic literacy concepts and build the foundations for a lifetime love of reading. Now teachers can bring that same educational fun into the classroom with Wild About Literacy. This books more than 150 activities featureing theme connections, vocabulary, materials and preparation, and extension ideas. Each chapter focuses on one component of literacy so teachers can use a targeted approach to help children learn essential literacy skills. The activities are easy and fun, and they are appropriate for small groups or for children who need one-on-one attention.
