  1. Looks good. I have Creative Corrections and you can borrow it. It is one of the books that I am bringing to the January ECIHEN meeting.

  2. I thought Creative Corrections was excellent and I also really enjoyed The Way They Learn!

    I liked The Help (i have it if you want to borrow it!) and my daughter liked it too.

    I can't always tell by the titles whether your books are fiction or non-fiction--but if you are interested in fiction books I have all kinds of suggestions if you're ever looking for something new! :)
