        “Sisters, sisters
         There were never such devoted sisters,”

         (Irving Berlin)



There has never been a truer statement than this to use when describing Gail Boushey and Joan Moser! These real life sisters have collaborated with a common vision for teaching strategies/techniques throughout their careers. They are best known for The Daily 5 and The CAFÉ Book.    "We want what every teacher wants: effective teaching methods that can adapt as things change, and to lead our children to a lifetime of learning." —Gail Boushey and Joan Moser
