Katie Cunningham’s Story: Still the Heart of Literacy Learning, published by Stenhouse Publishers, reminds us that stories found in literature, poetry, music, art and illustration, multimedia, and throughout all aspects of our lives serve to move us, inform us, and call us to action. What’s more, these narratives provide an invaluable teaching resource to attract young readers and writers and, subsequently, to deepen their understanding of the world. — Kelly Gallagher
