Teaching Art is written for classroom teachers, art education specialists, childcare workers, artists working in schools, parents who home-school their children, and school administrators. It can also be used as a university textbook for Education students. The book provides a framework for teaching art in a way that is integrated with regular classroom practice and mindful of current art curriculum outcomes. Although the book focuses on art for primary and middle-school students from pre-school to grade eight, Teaching Art is also useful to art specialists at the high-school level who are looking for new strategies or project ideas to add to their established secondary programs.

In A Feast of Rhyme, Rhythm, and Song, the authors present an interactive and engaging approach to teaching phonemic awareness – an essential foundation for later reading success. This book is for all children but specifically for children who are unaware of the subtleties of the sounds in the speech stream, or who do not realize that sounds represent letters in words. Authors Nancy Lee Cecil and Carol W. McCormick believe that children who have experienced the joyful phonemic awareness and music activities contained in A Feast of Rhyme, Rhythm, and Song will be primed and ready for the next step in the remarkable journey of learning to read.
