When, on July 2, 2006, Greg Williams lost his 2 1⁄2 year old granddaughter, Reagan Emery Williams, a victim of child abuse, he faced a choice: despair or action. Vowing that his "Sunshine" would be not just another statistic but, instead, a cause, Greg and his wife Marsha, along with Reagan's maternal grandparents, created Reagan's Rescue to raise awareness of Shaken Baby Syndrome (Abusive Head Trauma). The tangible effects of their advocacy and outreach and the progress Reagan's Rescue has made have left an impression locally, statewide, and even on the national and international levels. Before that terrible Sunday afternoon in July, Greg had kept a journal for Reagan, to be given to her on her 18th birthday. After her death, he continued to write to her. In these pages, he shares his journey, from initial shock and often debilitating grief to a search for knowledge, wisdom, peace, and purpose, all to perpetuate Reagan's memory and her legacy and to bring hope to others who are just beginning their own journeys.

Grounded in theory and best-practices research, this practical text provides teachers with 40 strategies for using fiction and non-fiction trade books to teach in five key content areas: language arts and reading, social studies, mathematics, science, and the arts. Each strategy provides everything a teacher needs to get started: a classroom example that models the strategy, a research-based rationale, relevant content standards, suggested books, reader-response questions and prompts, assessment ideas, examples of how to adapt the strategy for different grade levels (K–2, 3–5, and 6–8), and ideas for differentiating instruction for English language learners and struggling students. Throughout the book, student work samples and classroom vignettes bring the content to life.
