Age Level: 9 - 12 The classic story of Mole, Rat, Toad, Badger and the wonderful adventures they share
As spring begins to bloom across the countryside, so too does Mole’s desire to leave his underground home and venture into the wilds above. His journey delivers him to the banks of a river—the first Mole has ever seen—and to the blue-and-white boat captained by Rat. Their camaraderie sparked, Mole and Rat continue into the Wild Wood, meeting up with the cantankerous Badger and the impulsive Toad. No stranger to calamity, Toad and his reckless habits—including a tendency toward spectacular car crashes—will get the four friends into heaps of trouble, but their steadfast loyalty to one another always sees them through. The Wind in the Willows is a charming, unforgettable ode to friendship and one of the most cherished children’s stories of all time.

Story Master is a concise but an incredibly valuable guide for teachers and parents looking at finding creative ways to teach story telling to their children. The book is result of a wonderful language arts course (same name as the title of the book) taught by the author in Dallas. The author strongly believes that teachers should have the ability to match VARK (visual, auditory, reading-writing and kinesthetic) learners with appropriate stimuli.
Focused towards elementary level students, the book is divided into four segments (or guided play themes as the author describes them). Each segment can be enhanced to meet any class or home schooling needs. The author provides step-by-step directions on how to use described tools including LEGO® Educational Kits in bringing out the creativity of your student. The book also includes valuable tips and suggestions and links to many web-based resources.
