Hurry...Reading Month is Ending Soon!

Book WhispererDonalyn Miller, Teacher Magazine blogger and author, couldn't find a book that demonstrated her love for reading to her students so she decided to write one herself. It's a shame we aren't born with the desire to love books. We have to discover the world of books on our own, or from parents and teachers. Many of us have cherished childhood memories of visiting the library and happily leaving with an armful of books.

Last year we added non-English juvenile feature films and learning DVDs and all languages available in the Muzzy language learning series, and this year we've eliminated the old book/cassette language kits and have updated with book/CD kits.
