Summary This book provides educators and support staff with viable and inspired ways to meet the particular needs of children in transition. This ground-breaking volume provides a model of transition education that can be used in all elementary schools -- public, independent, and international -- and is easily integrated into an existing curriculum. The authors have chosen quality children's literature as a springboard for learning about transitions and have developed excellent follow-up activities to use in the classroom and creative ideas for cross-curricular connections. Appendices include Children's Literature Resources, Suggested Resources Related to Transition, and Tips for Parents.
