As an elementary teacher my colleagues and myself used Michelle Borba's material for classroom management techniques. When I saw her interviewed on Dr. Phil, I was surprised. My daughter has two young children and I thought this book would be a great resource as it spans the ages and covers all topics. I like the way it is organized and ease at which a specific issue can be located. The language is easy to read. Although sceptical as to how my daughter would receive such a gift, I am pleasantly surprised that she uses it.
