Something very interesting is happening. Children are becoming more intuitive, more psychic.

While there have always been a handful of children who have premonitions, can see those who have passed over, or have 'imaginary' friends, there are more of these children around now. Life can be hard for these children, unless they have adults who will listen and who understand these things.

In Psychic Kids Sue Bishop looks at highly gifted psychic children who talk with deceased grandparents and play with children in the spirit world, who have past life recall, see angels and auras, have a healing gift or can pick up on what has happened in places years before they were born. In this rich collection of real life stories, Sue explores these topics and more, giving the reader fascinating insights into what is really going on with these children. She also offers good advice on how to deal with these situations should you have one of these remarkable children in your life.

'An indispensible guide to raising intuitive children, Psychic Kids is packed with practical tips on how to support and nurture your child's gifts, helping them confidently step into their spiritual power. As a psychic and mum to two intuitive kids, Bishop is a true authority. She may even inspire you to awaken your own sixth sense.' - Bonnie Cleaver, senior writer and alternatives editor, Good Health

'Sue's percepttion and expertise in the field is second to none. She knows how to reach out and captivate her audience with her experuience and lively manner.' - Harry Michaels OAM

Ashley Bishop
"Teaching Word Analysis Skills provides a concise, easy-to-read overview of the conceptual, historical, and guiding principles that have been, are, and ever more will be absolutely pertinent to the teaching of word recognition strategies. Furthermore, it lays out practical options for teaching the essential structural, phonemic, and phonological analysis skills that lead to word recognition, an essential component of good reading comprehension. This book dispels myths and provides sound principles with a sensible blend of pragmatic practices. It is written with a healthy dose of Ash Bishop's disarmingly self-deprecating style. The result is high science with high wit and some tasty tongue-in-cheek humor. I don't know when I have last read something so sophisticated, nuanced, and practical, yet written with the some ease and the secret pleasure in reading that one might get from People Magazine. This book is for everyone who reads; Mothers, fathers, public policy makers, and of course, teachers. It is an essential read on reading and learning to read."---Anthony Manzo, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, University of Missouri-Kansas City and Recipient of the International Reading Association's highest honor, The 1993 Wm.S. Gray Citation of Merit.

This powerful book provides a comprehensive overview of the word analysis process and the essential skills that allow students to read efficiently. This book is a must-read for teachers of students who are learning to read and for teachers of struggling readers. Special attention is placed on phonics and the precursours of phonics: alphabet knowledge and phonemic awarencess. Chapters are also provided on structural analysis, sight words, context clues, fluency, and the special instructional needs of English learners. A unique and important focus throughout the book is that rich children's literature for all ages is a key component of the word analysis instructional environment.
