Enhancing the Early Reading Experience: Books, Strategies, and Concepts
Strickland, Michael; Abbott, Laura
Reading Teacher, v64 n1 p66-68 Sep 2010
Selecting books for young children can not only be a fun and rewarding experience but also a little daunting, considering the number of books available. Frequent collaboration between an author and a public librarian has produced valuable insights about how to begin reading with very young children. Suggestions are offered for how parents and educators can choose books that will encourage and motivate lifelong readers. Six research-based areas defined by the Every Child Ready to Read @ your library program provide the framework: vocabulary, narrative connections, print motivation, print awareness, letter knowledge, and phonological awareness. Parents and teachers can evaluate various books based on this model. Several examples of books are described, and strategies for instruction and engagement are included with each.
