Lewisville, NC (PRWEB) September 08, 2011

Two books published by Gryphon House, Inc. – Social Studies and Me! and Socially Strong, Emotionally Secure – have been selected as Learning® Magazine's 18th Annual Teachers' Choice Award for the Classroom winners.

For 18 years, this prestigious award is given to the very best in classroom-tested, teacher-recommended products. Each year, Learning® Magazine’s nationwide panel of teacher-judges names the standouts in books, classroom supplies, educational games, software, websites, and more. Each product is evaluated on the characteristics most important to teachers – quality, instructional value, ease of use, innovation, relevance to curriculum – and ultimately whether or not the jury of teachers would recommend it to other teachers.

Socially Strong, Emotionally Secure is filled with activities to promote resilience, build social and emotional strength, and prepare young children to handle the challenges in life from an early age. Written by Nefertiti Bruce, M.Ed. and Karen B. Cairone with the Devereux Center for Resilient Children, Socially Strong, Emotionally Secure is divided into five chapters packed with activities to help children ages 3 to 8 develop the skills they need to navigate through life successfully.

With Social Studies and Me!, teachers can support children’s curiosity by using storybooks to engage them in social studies and literacy learning. Each storybook exploration links to social studies state standards and learning objectives while also providing ideas for extending, observing, and assessing the learning. Written by Sally Anderson with The Vermont Center for the Book, Social Studies and Me! uses children’s books to help young ones learn more about the world around them.

Social Studies and Me! ($24.95, 208 pages, paperback, ISBN: 978-0-87659-331-8) and Socially Strong, Emotionally Secure ($16.95, 160 pages, paperback, ISBN: 978-0-87659-332-5) are both available from Gryphon House, Inc.
