I too am always looking for quality early primary lessons. I write most of
those lessons myself or combine and modify things I find. In terms of buying a
book like Pam's....I have learned...I need to see it first! I am sure it is
absolutely FABULOUS....but after spending money on many "curriculum" type
books that offer lessons...I find them sorely lacking.
My point is...NOT that I think Pam's book would be lacking...but as a buyer I
would like to be able to thumb through it. And...the unfortunate thing is
that when you are purchasing through a catalog it is hard to really get to what
is the content of the book. Does that make sense?
I personally think the subject matter is LONG OVER DUE!!! Kudos to Pam and
her partner!!! I am sure I will purchase it...but...I guess this long
explaination is to maybe present a point of view about why teachers do not run out
and buy such books. BECAUSE we have been burned by the crummy ones!!!
