ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading, English, and Communication, Bloomington, IN.; Family Learning Association, Bloomington, IN.
This book, one of a series, shares ideas on how parents can help children cope with and learn from tests. The message of the series urges parents and children to spend time together, talk about stories, and learn together. The first part of each book presents stories appropriate for varying grade levels, both younger children and those in grades three and four, and each book presents stories on a particular theme. The Read-along Stories in this book are: "The Burglar Alarm Case" (Ann Devendorf); "The Lunch Box" (Marilyn Kratz); and "The Girl Who Brought Down the Wind" (Constance Veatch Toney). On an accompanying audiotape, the stories are performed as radio dramas, allowing children to read along. The second half of each book provides ideas and guidelines for parents, as well as activities and books for additional reading. Sections in this book include: everyone can do better on tests; test anxiety; practice tests; and attitude and health. Activities to help children learn while having fun are also included. Contains 30 references. (EF)
