    Good Afternoon Mr. Gravely,

    We spoke earlier today. Now I have another question, I am trying to purchase a Combo Pack in both English and Spanish. I see that the combo pack in English is $24.95 but when I add the Spanish it does not gives it tome as combo pack. Do I have to purchase the Spanish books separately at $17.95 each. Please let me know.

    Note: Correction; I actually learned about the handbooks by an email I received from The Gravely Group not through NHSA.

    Thanks so much,

    I am excited to see these books revamped! Melvin Gravely’s insight and passion for the Head Start/Early Head Start Program shows clearly in these guides, ‘Head Start Program Governance’ and ‘Effective Head Start Meetings’. They are comprehensive yet broken down clearly to the benefit of anyone who desires to know more about the origins of Head Start, organizing a program, and how a program is run. Must reads for any parent and any organization that desires to perform more efficiently.
