Early Book Stages, 0-5 Years [and] Creciendo con Libros (Growing [up] with Books). [Videotape.]
Holguin, Roxanna
Using a lighthearted and simple approach, this 23-minute videotape in English and Spanish versions presents interactions between parents and children while reading books. The children in the videotape range in age from 0 to 5 years. The video is introduced by scenes of children enjoying books while narration discussing the impact of reading to children at a very early age is heard. The remaining portion of the video is divided into segments by years: 0-1, 1-2, 3-4, and 4-5 years. The video covers the developmental stages and reading behaviors children go through in each of the growing periods. The video shows infants chewing books and learning how to open books, older infants naming pictures and holding books upside down or turning pages backwards, and still older children gradually using books and listening to stories in a more traditional way. Interaction with the child is stressed in the video. A review of the entire footage is seen at the end of the video (about 1 minute in length) where it is easily observed that children who are read to early on go from "chewing books" to "reading books." The video uses graphics to make developmental points for each year. The video shows clearly what to expect children to do with books at different ages and how parents can facilitate their children's language skills and love of books by reading to them. (NKA)
