Book Giveaway: Reading Together: Everything You Need to Know to Raise a Child Who Loves to Read ~ Diane W. Frankenstein
Posted Sep 06 2009 10:03pm
As as a parent, I have often times found myself clueless when it came to certain aspects of raising my child. I spent endless amounts of hours wondering how in the world I would teach my child how to read, write, draw, tie his shoes and many other important aspects. Our pediatrician would reassure me that my son was learning at the right pace, but if I still was not confident, I could always join playgroups. Those fears subsided after the birth of my second child because hey, I knew what I was doing!
Reading Together, by Diane Frankenstein has also helped to ease my mind and reassure me that all of the tips and tools I have been using with my son will actually help him in the long run. Diane believes in the the simple equation: read a book – ask a question – start a conversation = raising a child who loves to read. In her book, she offers recommendations for what to read, as well as providing you with approaches (prove successful) in raising a child that loves to read.
A study by the Michigan Department of Education concluded that more than budgets or teachers, parents are the reasons children perform as they do in school. READING TOGETHER offers parents: * Invaluable reading tips that support their efforts in raising readers * More than 750 additional book recommendations, child-tested and teacher-approved * Guidelines for selecting appropriate books both in terms of reading level and emotional readiness * Conversation starters for some of the many challenges of childhood, including bullies, peer pressure, resilience, popularity, and much more…
