More Than Just Reading a Book
Reading books with children is one of the big joys of working with young children. Watching children’s faces as the story develops and children are wrapped in the story along with the rhythm and magic of the language of each book reinforces the importance of reading with children. Understanding that reading books with children builds language skills, social and emotional skills, and many school readiness skills will be a focus of this course. We will look at what books support different skills in developmental stages and how to promote parent engagement in reading with children regularly.
