For hundreds of years, school children in Japan have been introduced to poetry through the work of Issa. Born in 1763 on a farm in central Japan, Issa began writing poetry as a young child, inspired by his deep love for the natural world. Later in his boyhood and throughout his life, poetry was also Issa's refuge in times of joy and in times of suffering. Matthew Gollub's poignant rendering of Issa's life and over thirty of his best-loved poems, along with Kazuko Stone's sensitive and humorous watercolor paintings, make Cool Melons a classic introduction to Issa's work for readers of all ages. With authentic Japanese calligraphy, a detailed Afterword, and exhaustive research by both author and illustrator, this is also an inspirational book about haiku, writing, nature, and life.

Catherine M. O'Callaghan, Patricia A. Antonacci, Lucy P. Murphy, Florence D. Musiello, and Eugene Wolfson "Using Children's Literature Across the Curriculum: A Handbook of Instructional Strategies" This resource uniquely offers preservice and inservice teachers templates for using quality children's literature to implement six themes across grades K-8. The themes are based on national curriculum standards and text sets are carefully selected to facilitate discussion, analysis, and problem solving across the grades. "Using Children s Literature Across the Curriculum, "provides teachers with a guide to using multilayered texts to facilitate students attainment of critical literacy. It is designed to be a supplemental guide for teachers in designing literacy instruction. The instructional sequence includes collaborative inquiry activities across the curriculum to extend each theme to math, science, technology and social studies. Teachers are shown how to incorporate family literacy with a component entitled Home School Connections and to differentiate instruction for individual learners with a section entitled On Your Own Activities . The theme concludes with a critical literacy activity that applies the content knowledge of the theme with collaborative inquiry. ""I m excited to have this tool to share with the teachers in our program ..." "I had been given this as a first year teacher, I would have been thrilled. It s wonderful all encompassing."" - Susan T. Weakland, Pathways Educational Program, Curriculum Coordinator, Moultrie, GA "Highly recommended!" - Dr. Gail Singleton Taylor, Old Dominion University, Darden College of Education, Norfolk, VA ""A useful reference for teachers (new and experienced) to use to see how interdisciplinary work can be accomplished. It provides good examples, activities, and references that would provide a successful first experience for teachers working" "with thematic studies."" - Lisa Grundstrom, Bloomington Public Schools, K-2 Teacher, Bloomington, MN "
