A handy, easy-to-use guide that gives parents proven strategies to help young children get hooked on reading.From the earliest age, children respond to stimuli that prepare them to enjoy books and reading. This guide illustrates how parents and caregivers can foster a love of reading from the time a baby is born. Whether it's listening to the rhythmic cadence of chants and nursery rhymes, looking at brightly colored pictures, or listening to stories, children learn to associate reading with the warm and happy experience of spending time with a parent, grandparent, or caregiver. Filled with rhymes, songs, and games, Let's Get Ready for Reading provides tons of suggestions for engaging kids, from using different voices for the characters in a book to helping them recognize shapes in preparation for learning the alphabet. A look at developmental milestones helps parents adapt strategies to the age of the child, while dozens of recommended books take out the guesswork during the next visit to the library or bookstore.

Based on the Every Child Ready to Read (ECRR) initiative (talking, singing, reading, writing, playing http://www.everychildreadytoread.org/) this resource published by the Toronto Public Library is full of songs, rhymes, reading recommendations, literacy tips and activities for parents, early childhood educators, and children's librarians to support young children in early literacy development and school readiness.

Following ECRR principles, the resource presents sections on liking books, hearing words, knowing words, telling story, seeing words, and knowing letters to support children with their pre-reading and reading skills. Each of these topical sections also outlines developmental milestones for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers.

Highly recommend!
