Book Review: Let's Get Ready for Reading: A Guide to Help Kids Become Readers by Public Library
In Let's Get Ready for Reading: A Guide to Help Kids Become Readers by Public Library illustrates how parents and caregivers can foster a love of reading from the time a baby is born. Whether it's listening to the rhythmic cadence of chants and nursery rhymes, looking at brightly colored pictures, or listening to stories, children learn to associate reading with the warm and happy experience of spending time with a parent, grandparent, or caregiver. Filled with rhymes, songs, and games it provides tons of suggestions to engage children. A look at development milestones help parents adapt strategies to the age of the child, while dozens of recommended books take out the guesswork during the next visit to the library or bookstore.
This book is really great for parents who want to know where to go with their toddlers. It helps parents find ways to use rhymes, songs, and games that will get their child reading for the next step of learning how to read. It also gives lots of suggestions of books to read in it. Though for me it was what I already have learned in my classes to get reading for teaching. This is a great book for parents to read.
