CONGRATS TO ADAILYWOMAN!
What Children Need to Learn to READ
Michelle Vallene

Book Description:
"Your Child's First Reading Teacher Is ... YOU! "What Children Need to Learn to READ" is the ultimate resource for parents and other adults who want to encourage literacy in young children. Packed with age-appropriate tips, techniques, fun activities, checklists, and common-sense suggestions, this one-of-a-kind book will answer your questions, boost your confidence, and prepare you for one of the most rewarding things you'll ever do!! You'll learn: What works best for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and early elementary school students. How to make reading a FUN and familiar part of everyday life. Where to find the best children's books, magazines, games, websites, and more."

"What Kids Need to Learn to READ" is a Book of the Year Award finalist!
 
What we thought:  Speaking as both a mother and a former early childhood educator I can say this book is fantastic!  It is a wonderful tool for any parent who has a child, even a baby.  Children can start learning the basics of reading from a very young age and this book guides you through each stage and provides you with songs, rhymes, checklists and, basically, lesson plans every step of the way.  This book can help you help build a strong foundation during your child's early years and can help instill a love of learning in your child that can last a lifetime.  You wouldn't believe how easy it actually is!  You are probably doing some of the things Michelle Vallene recommends and this book will reinforce those behaviors and provide you with the information and motivation you need to get your child right where they need to be when it comes to learning to read:)  ABCD Diaries gives "What Children Need to Learn to READ" an A+!
