Raising Readers: A Guide to Sharing Literature with Young Children.
Lamme, Linda Leonard; And Others
The purpose of this book is to provide parents with a variety of ideas for getting young children from infancy until the beginning reading stages involved with literature. An introductory section contains discussions of the literary needs of children and of how children develop a sense of literature, guidelines to use in determining literary experiences for children, and a checklist for parents to use in assessing their progress as they proceed with the reading program. The four chapters that comprise the major portion of the book contain suggestions for activities for sharing literature with children and lists of books to use with children at four age levels: infants (newborn to one year old), toddlers (one to three years old), prereaders (three to five years old), and beginning readers. A final chapter contains a summary and suggestions for sharing literature with older children. Two appendixes provide lists of names and addresses of children's magazines and of publishers of children's books. (FL)
