38 Perfect Books To Read Aloud With Kids This story, about meeting a small boy from a faraway planet, is magical. Its themes, like becoming a grown-up and finding extraordinary things in the ordinary world, are magical. All the little drawings peppered throughout are magical. It’s one of those books that’s just as worthwhile for adults to read as children, and I’m jealous of anyone who gets to discover it for the first time. It looks like a collage and reads like the lyrics to the world’s most infectious rap song (totally appropriate for kids, of course). 38 Perfect Books To Read Aloud With Kids

Why Older Readers Should Read Picture Books Why Older Readers Should Read Picture Books I have often observed how keen some parents and teachers can be to move their children's reading on from picture books to chapter books. Many parents move their children on from picture books very quickly, encouraging their children to read chapter books almost as soon as they become proficient and fluent in reading. In an age when many parents are sold on the idea that 'Your Baby Can Read' from 6-12 months, there is an urge to move them quickly on to novels.
Reading is an essential skill on par with other literacy skills.It is a way of expanding one's learning repertoire. Some think that with the advance of digital technology and its encroachment into every aspect of our life, reading will be backgrounded in favor of watching or viewing ( visual stimulus ).On the face of it it looks like this is the case, people tend to favor watching a video tutorial rather than reading a textual one or reading a guide. The human eyes are very much attracted to visual animations and the mind is easily rejoiced in them because the decoding process is way easier on the brain when it comes to a video . To be more specific, let us have a look at what happens when we read. For instance, when reading a single word, the eyes need to identify its shape and the letters from which it is composed and when finally identified then an inner voice inside our heads speak it automatically to our ears and then the mind identifies it and connects it with a certain meaning. 3 Great Strategies to Help you Read Faster ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning 3 Great Strategies to Help you Read Faster ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning
