"What does this poem mean?" "How should I read it?" "How do we talk about it?" "What do I DO with it?" "What's the best way to assess it?" "How do I meet standards?" "When can I possibly fit it into my already over-packed day?" Have you ever asked these questions about poetry? The 30 Painless Classroom Poems series makes it easy for you, the elementary school teacher, media specialist, or reading specialist, to share poetry with your students. Whether you already love poetry or you fear or even actively dislike it, these books are for you. The poems, Notes from the Poet, extension activities written by experienced classroom teachers, and tips for using poetry in your classroom will have you sharing poems in no time. In Fairy Tale Garage Sale, award-winning poet Laura Purdie Salas (author of BookSpeak!, Water Can Be..., and more) shares 30 poems from the citizens of Fairy Tale Land, who are having a neighborhood garage sale. Finally, they can get rid of clutter from their earlier adventures! These 30 poems focus on seven fairy tales: Cinderella; Goldilocks and the Three Bears; Snow White and the Seven Dwarves; Rapunzel; Jack and the Beanstalk; The Emperor's New Clothes; and Thumbelina. For each fairy tale, an introductory poem summarizes the key events of the tale for those students not familiar with it. Then three poems from three characters' points-of-view offer up items for sale. What does the Evil Queen need with a mirror that tells the truth, after all? And why doesn't Rapunzel need barrettes anymore? These humorous poems offer behind-the-scenes looks and sometimes different opinions about why things happened as they did. Great for comparing versions of the same event when paired with prose or multimedia versions of the fairy tales. Mostly rhyming poems, but some other forms, too (cinquain, diamante, acrostic...) Extension activities by Colby Sharp share ideas for springboarding from these poems into deeper learning across many content areas. Sample: From Rapunzel:Item for sale: CastleFor sale by: The Witch Charming Tower - Perfect for One One room One window Not one single door No rugs No curtains No tacky décor I'm old Can't climb up These walls made of stone So make me An offer And make this your home! Note from the Poet: Repetition (and I know I've already talked about this in another Note, so I'm repeating myself a little bit!) is really key to lots of poetry. I repeat two words in this poem: "one" and "no." The idea for this horrible castle where Rapunzel was kept prisoner is that it's lonely. It's lacking in anything that would show comfort or luxury. I'm hoping that repeating those words helps get that idea across. See all of the 30 Painless Classroom Poems at www.30PainlessClassroomPoems.com. Disclaimer: For those of you collecting all my 30 Painless Classroom Poems books, please note that some information, such as Why Poetry Matters and Classroom Poetry Tips, is repeated from book to book. The introduction to the book, the poems, the Notes from the Poet, and the classroom activities are unique to each book.

On the last day of the millennium, sassy Faith Bass Darling, the richest old lady in Bass, Texas, decides to have a garage sale. With help from a couple of neighborhood boys, Faith lugs her priceless Louis XV elephant clock, countless Tiffany lamps, and everything else in her nineteenth-century mansion out onto her long, sloping lawn. Why is a recluse of twenty years suddenly selling off her dearest posessions? Because God told her to. As the townspeople grab up five generations of heirlooms, everyone drawn to the sale--including Faith's long-lost daughter--finds that the antiques not only hold family secrets but also inspire some of life's most important questions: Do our possessions possess us? What are we without our memories? Is there life after death or second chances here on earth? And is Faith really selling that Tiffany lamp for $1? READERS GUIDE INCLUDED

Throw in jealous exes, high-pressure careers and two wildly different families, and the degree of difficulty goes up a few more notches.

Saskia is an up-and-coming jewellery designer, waiting tables at a trendy cafe to keep her fledgling company afloat.

They're passionate about their work and each other, but with Andy's job in jeopardy and Saskia's jewellery label taking off, the pressure is taking its toll. As life pulls them in different directions, the two of them are forced to decide: Just how important is their marriage? And how hard are they willing to work to protect it?
