Authored by two passionate psychologists and educators, Book Smart: How to Develop and Support Successful, Motivated Readers is a how-to guide rich with stories, lessons, activities, and ideas aimed at supporting reading development and addressing the broad range of interpersonal, social, emotional, and motivational skills that can be fostered by reading with young children. The early chapters in this book will help you get your child ready for school and ready to read, and the later chapters will help you foster your child's lifelong love of reading. Throughout the book, the authors also provide tips for building a special bond with your child through reading together, from giving appropriate praise to modeling persistence. Perhaps most importantly, this book serves as a guide along the path to raising an independent reader. This journey begins with a discussion of oral language and early reading skills and then moves into early writing attempts, story comprehension, general knowledge development, and social-emotional growth. This book will help parents bring the joy of reading into the home.

Alex Petroski, 11 ans, est passionné de sciences. Son héros, c'est Carl Sagan ; il l'admire tellement qu'il a donné son nom au chiot abandonné que sa maman l'a laissé adopter. D'ailleurs, sa maman n'est pas contrariante : tant qu'Alex lui fait la cuisine et ne l'embête pas pendant les journées qu'elle passe au lit, elle est plutôt permissive. Elle n'émet donc pas d'objections lorsque son fils lui annonce qu'il part seul à un congrès de fans d'aérospatiale. Le périple d'Alex commence. Au fur et à mesure, il en enregistre le compte-rendu sur un iPod qu'il prévoit d'envoyer dans l'espace, à l'attention d'éventuels extraterrestres. Il s'adresse directement à eux, spéculant sur leur apparence, leur habitat, leurs moeurs... Arrivé au congrès, il rencontre Steve, Nathan et Zed. Conquis par sa verve, sa passion et sa grande maturité, les trois jeunes hommes le prennent sous leur aile, et proposent de le ramener chez lui. En chemin, se noue entre les quatre acolytes une amitié dont chacun sortira changé - et grandi.
