Literacy is so important and an early start will help develop a child's skills and desire to read. Learning and school involves a lot of reading. If I hadn't loved to read, I'm not so sure I would have done as well in school. I remember my parents reading to me very early on and encouraging my love of books. Unfortunately, my love for books sometimes challenged the family budget, but I could have been asking for worse things!
What Children Need to Learn to READ was written by Michelle Vallene, who has a teaching degree, specializing in reading and English. She has three children of her own, and while raising them she started her business, Learner's Lane. It started with reading classes in her home, but the demand grew and classes were moved to schools and community centers.
While it's great to have work helping children to read, it prompted the creation of this book. There are plenty of things we as parents can do to help our children with their reading so they don't need extra programs to help them learn. At least it should help reduce the demand. This book provides information on learning stages and activities for different stages from birth to early elementary school.
It includes nursery rhymes, which Rissa loves along with other activities, tips, and resources for parents. We can teach our children so much if we have the right tools! One of the most important lessons I took away from this book is to read to my daughter often. Let her see and learn that it is a fun, daily activity. And, let her play with some books on her own. She certainly does this! She looks through them and will bring books to me, asking to be read to!
The CD includes the songs and nursery rhymes in the book which is a nice addition – I can take a break from singing for a few minutes!
Now that's a great gift!
