ATTITUDE OVER APTITUDE. EFFORT OVER ACHIEVEMENT. CHARACTER OVER TALENT. For families, educators, corporations, and communities, The Biggest Job We'll Ever Have is nothing less than a new paradigm for reconnecting education with core values. With more than thirty-five years' experience at Hyde, an organization of internationally known, award-winning schools and programs, Laura and Malcolm Gauld argue persuasively that true education for our children springs not just from seeking good grades and achievements but from reestablishing a true commitment to character, attitude, and a sense of purpose. The Hyde program emphasizes ten core beliefs -- the school's 10 Priorities -- that address how families can find the right balance between character and achievement. The results have been nothing short of astonishing: Children of all abilities and from every background have succeeded far beyond any expectations of them, both personally and academically, thanks to what they and their families have learned at Hyde. Unlike other education books that focus on the child, The Biggest Job We'll Ever Have focuses on a child's primary teacher -- the parent. The Gaulds explain that parents have an enormous impact on how their children approach education and life. They describe how parents can enhance their children's education by improving family dynamics and introducing honesty into all aspects of family life. And they detail the 10 Priorities clearly and logically, so that any family can embrace them. But that's only part of this book's appeal. Perhaps its true power comes from the dozens of Hyde parents and students who willingly share their own remarkable stories -- honest, funny, sad, moving, provocative -- that attest to the transformational power of the Hyde philosophy. Being a parent and a child today isn't easy; so much that we thought was important simply is not. As parents and educators, Laura and Malcolm Gauld believe that the way to motivate kids and build stronger families is to focus on identifying what is truly important. In The Biggest Job We'll Ever Have, they do exactly that.
Arthur's little sister, D.W., has her doubts about the gymnastics class she's taking. She's pretty sure she's better than most of the kids in the class. But when it's time to learn how to do a forward roll, she learns how hard it can be and how much practice it takes to really become good at it. Worse yet, Emily is better at flips than is D.W., and Emily knows it.
When Mom sends D.W. to her room, ten minutes seem like forever. At first D.W. sulks, but as the time crawls by, she starts to worry. What if she starves? What if her family doesn't love her anymore? What if she's stuck in her room for the rest of her life? Every minute, D.W. imagines a wild new scenario as she waits out her punishment. Then an unexpected visitor comes to her rescue. . . . In this seventh D.W book, Marc Brown turns a universal childhood experience into a hilarious adventure with his unique blend of humor, warmth, and insight.
Arthur doesn't think D.W. can behave perfectly for a day. He dares her to try it, and she does. During her perfect day, she learns cool things about how good manners can help. She even thinks it's almost like magic. She gives great suggestions on how to have good manners, and there's a manners quiz at the back of the book for you to try.

"Racoons danced in pairs, baboons danced in troops, and snakes joined the dancers as live hula-hoops." Children's favorite songs get a funny new spin--seals bark out "The seals on the bus go round and round"--as the animals create their very own musical.Young readers and listeners will be amazed and delighted at how the animals chase the winter doldrums by getting along as friends, pooling their talents, and pushing themselves to new heights.

ZooZical is sure to inspire some "can do" fun in kindergarten and primary grades.From the Hardcover edition.
