Raising Readers

My favorite part of reading

to my three year old daughter

is what happens later.

When Hello Kitty, and

Cabbage Patch Kid, and

her favorite monkey are lined

up in her crib while

she recites the book to

her adoring audience, my heart melts.


Read Aloud

“When I see a Read Aloud session in my mind’s eye, there’s either an adult sitting in a big old chair or on a sofa, with a child on the adult’s lap or snuggled up close, sharing a book, or an adult sitting or lying on a bed with the child tucked up, wide eyed, as stories are being read. And the experience is always fantastic. The more expressively we read, the more fantastic the experience will be. The more our kids love books, the more they’ll pretend to read them, and the more quickly they’ll learn to read. So reading aloud is not quite enough – we need to read aloud well”.

Mem Fox

Every Book Counts

If you read just one

Growing Book by Book

You know you are the parent of a toddler if you can name these books.

” In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf.”

“And a comb and a brush and a bowl full of mush.”
