Children's Books That Reinforce Reading Skills.
Canavan, Diane D.
This guide familiarizes teachers with children's books and ways that they can be used to highlight and reinforce reading skills. Each of the 10 sections provides annotated lists of books, suggesting practical follow-up activities for skill development, extension, or enrichment. The beginning of each section includes remarks concerning the nature of the skill and its relationship to the books featured in the list. The sections consist of: (1) "Books Featuring Kinesthetic Language Learning"; (2) "Books That Require Visual Discriminating"; (3) "ABC Books and Awareness of Letter Forms"; (4) "Books Focusing on Sounds or Word Families"; (5) "Language Play through Riddles and Jokes"; (6) "Books Featuring Idioms, Multiple Meanings, Homonyms, and Antonyms"; (7) "Books Featuring Alliteration, Onomatopoeia, and Similes"; (8) "Books That Reinforce Learning the Parts of Speech"; (9) "Books about the Act of Reading"; and (10) "Ideas for Using Books To Reinforce Other Reading Skills" (including books that reinforce following directions, developing vocabulary, and creative/critical thinking).
