School Curriculums Adopt Kids to the Rescue!

McGraw-Hill includes Kids to the Rescue! in its fourth grade reading curriculum and the California Department of Education has also approved several Parenting Press publications including Kids to the Rescue! for supplemental use in California public schools, one of the largest school markets in the world.

"These guidelines ensure that materials portray democratic values, cultural pluralism, and the diversity of our population by emphasizing people in a variety of positive roles," the Press was told. Evaluation of the educational value remains the responsibility of the school or district making a purchase.

The Parenting Press publications will now be included on the list of California's Legal and Social Compliance Approved Out-of-Cycle Instructional Materials and can be purchased with Prop. 20 Lottery Funds or IMFRP funds remaining after the purchase of required instructional texts.

You may use any of the material in the online media kits for book reviews and stories that mention the book and its author.
