“An intensive training program for youth to grow and become winners in the competition of life.”


“Unlike my book on the 7 Habits, this book by my son Sean speaks directly to teens in an entertaining and visually appealing style (and Sean, I never thought you listened to a word I said).  As prejudiced as this may sound, this is a remarkable book, a must-read!”


“This book is a touchdown.”


“This book has many positive, inspirational, and motivational strategies to help teenagers live up to their potential.”





Once again, Stephen Covey has found a way to touch the lives of

every man, woman, and child.  This book shares extraordinary stories

from people who offer you a look into their extraordinary lives.



In the ten years since its publication, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has become a worldwide phenomenon, with more than twelve million readers in thirty-two languages.  Living the 7 Habits : Stories of Courage and Inspiration captures the essence of people’s real-life experiences, applying proven principles to help them solve their problems and overcome challenges.  In this uplifting and riveting collection of stories, readers will find wonderful examples of hope and encouragement as they are touched by the words of real people and their experiences of change – change that got them through difficult times; change that solved family crises; change that mended broken relationships; change that turned their business around; change that influenced entire communities.

The readers’ understanding is enhanced by the personal commentary and added insights of Dr. Stephen R Covey, as he explains how the application of his principles aided each situation.  He also adds other provocative examples throughout the book that show how these applications can enhance your life.  Whether you have read his previous works or not, these touching and powerful stories will enthrall and inspire you with an energizing recognition of your own freedom, potential, and power.




Finally, a book about multiple Intelligences (MI) theory that answers the questions that all educational innovations must ultimately address “What are the results on student achievement?”  How were those results achieved?”  Multiple Intelligences and Student Achievement describes six schools that have used MI theory for five or more years.  Through case studies of two elementary, two middle-level, and two high schools.  Linda and Bruce Campbell illustrate why markedly different schools – large and small, rich and poor, inner-city and suburban – looked to MI when they wanted to boost student learning.

In schools with long-term MI programs, achievement gains on state assessments and standardized rests are impressive, in fact, the disparity between white and minority students is reduced or eliminated.  Students at all three levels outperform their district, country, and national peers in basic skills.  Such gains are possible even though the teachers do not teach to the test.  Instead they believe that all students have strengths and as a result students come to believe in themselves as well.  Moreover, teachers have discovered that instruction through multiple intelligences is so positive and engaging that students – all students – can’t help but learn.

The book provides educators who are new to MI theory with solid achievement data and curricular formats to support inform, and inspire their work.  Those who have already worked with MI theory will find encouragement to continue and suggestions for refining their efforts.

Aimed at teachers and parents who are concerned with children from infancy through the Primary school years, How Children Learn Mathematics is a much needed manual encompassing Levels 1 to 5 of the National Curriculum for England and Wales.  It takes the reader through the development of abstract thought in very young children and describes how children’s experiences can be used to help them grasp the principles underlying such processes as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and measurement.

The author goes on to discuss fractions and decimals, calculators and computers, some theories of learning and the vexed problems of why some children fail at mathematics.

There could be no simpler or more expert way to find out how your children learn about this most stimulating and satisfying of subjects.

How Children Fail?

`How does this mass failure take place?  What really goes on in the classroom?  What are these children who fail doing?  What goes on in their heads?  Why don’t they make more use of their capacity?’

In this absorbing study John Holt used his lifelong experience in education to find an answer to these questions.  When it was first published in 1964, How Children Fail initiated an international debate on educational reform.  The New York Review of Books put John Holt in a class with Piaget, while Life magazine called him `the gentle voice of reason’.  This second edition includes a fresh look at how children investigate the world and cope with `social promotion’, grades, tests and the issue of authority.  Established as a classic in its field, How Children Fail has sold over a million copies.  Every teacher will benefit from his insight.

`John Holt has done a good and necessary job.  A very good book indeed’

- A S Neill

`An important, compassionate and disturbing book, which will make any teacher think about his or methods’

All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten by Robert Fulghum

It is a beautifully put together book which makes the case that the values we carry with us into adult life are the ones we learned in kindergarten.  That’s an important lesson for parents of young children.

- Ms. Abha Adams, Director of the Shri Ram School, Delhi

“First published in 1964 and revised in 1982, this book provides parents important insights into classroom dynamics.  Though set in the American context this book and its twin publication How Children Learn have global relevance.

Here is a revolutionary book that offers parents hundreds of practical things they can do to help influence, encourage, and – most of all – maximize their child’s learning ability.  Whether you have a preschooler attending nursery school or a teenager in high school, you can provide the aids and activities that will enable your child to excel at almost any skill.

Over twenty years ago, Dr. Lauren Bradway discovered that all children have specific learning styles – that is, they use one of three distinct ways to pick up and remember information.  Some learn best through visual stimulation; some are most sensitive to sound and language; and others absorb information through touch and motion.  Once Dr. Bradway determines a child’s learning style, she can – through the careful selection of toys, activities, and learning strategies – reinforce those talents and traits with which a child was blessed at birth while encouraging those skills that do not come as naturally.  The end result is a happier, more self-assured child whose learning skills have been greatly enhanced.

What you find in How to Maximize Your Child’s Learning Ability are the basic concepts behind Dr. Bradway’s techniques, simple tests to uncover your child’s learning style, and itemized lists of materials and tactics that you can use to supercharge your child’s learning skills – everything you need to get your child started on the road to a more successful future.

Living, Loving and Learning

Living, Loving and Learning is a delightful collection of Dr. Buscaglia’s informative and amusing lectures, which were delivered worldwide between 1970 and 1981.  This inspirational treasure is for all those eager to accept the challenge of life and to profit from the wonder of love.

Some of these speeches may be different from the way you originally remembered hearing or reading them.  That is because most repeated stories have been removed.  All the material is included at least once within this collection.

I hope you find it as pleasurable reading these presentations as I did listening to the tapes and reading the transcripts.  I think Dr. Buscaglia’s work is important because it is so sincere, so full of love, and so hopeful.

- Steven Short, Editor

“This is a personal favourite.  It was on the New York Times best-seller list for ten months and its editor refers to it as an “inspirational treasure”.

Divasvapna is the imaginary story of a teacher who rejects the orthodox culture of education.  He remains enthusiastic towards children and continues to experiment while consciously neglecting the traditions of teaching from prescribed text-books.  The theoretical background of his experiments lies in Montessori, but his preparation and implementation are thoroughly local.

As a reader of Divasvapna one is blown off in a gust of joy and curiosity, leaving behind the sadness borne out of one’s knowledge of India’s colourless, dust-wrapped primary schools.  One starts to paint the picture of a future in which the talent imprisoned in the nation’s schools will break forth and children will enjoy the pleasure of taking stock of the world around the classroom with their teacher.

This engaging series of childhood recollections tells about an ideal school in Tokyo during World War II that combined learning with fun, freedom, and love. This unusual school had old railroad cards for classrooms, and it was run by an extraordinary ma- its founder and headmaster, Sosaku Kobayashi- who was a firm believer in freedom of expression and activity.

In real life, the Toto Chan of the book has become one of Japan's most popular television personalities - Tetsuko Kuroyanagi. She attributes her success in life to this wonderful school and its headmaster.

The charm of this account has won the hearts of millions of people of all ages and made this book  a runaway best seller in Japan, with sales hitting the 4.5 million mark in its first year.

Maria Montessori - The Secret of Childhood

The child has a spontaneous urge to learn. An understanding of this simple secret led to the development of what we know as Montessori education. In THE SECRET OF CHILDHOOD, Maria Montessori describes the child with warmth and with the exactness of the scientist. She also discusses the array of materials and techniques needed to release his learning potential.


The Blackboard Book-by Eleanor Watts

The blackboard is an important and often the only visual aid that many schools use. The Blackboard Book presents some of the infinite ways in which the blackboard  can be used to liven up the teaching of language as well as history, geography, science and mathematics.

This book not only aims to develop skills of writing and drawing people, common objects and situations but also the skill of devising exercises which serve to teach-highlight-practices concepts. In this unique, user-friendly book, Eleanor Watts shows how the blackboard can reflect the real world with depth, imagination and humour.
