Spanos-Hawkey, Dena, Ed.
Intended for literacy students who want to share the pleasure of reading with the children they love, this book describes 26 easy, inexpensive activities to expose children to reading. Each activity explains the type of activity, lists materials needed, and provides instructions or suggestions for extending the activity. A suggested book list categorizes 168 books suitable for sharing with a child into these groupings: libraries and books: an eye-opening experience; adventures in reading and writing; stories about literacy; cultural diversity: a world's eye view; school days; did I see that?; alphabet explorations; colors; fun with numbers; move that body; grown up issues for children, including homelessness, race and gender, inter-racial families, birth and babies, siblings, adoption, war, holocaust, day labor, death: loss and sadness, alcoholism, dangerous strangers/sexual abuse, divorce, and children with special needs; that's just how I feel; and just for fun!
