April 23 is World Book Day, but every day is Book Day at Halifax Learning in our SpellRead classes.
Below are 10 books we love and a favorite quote from each. These books are fun, imaginative stories that are sure to spark up a conversation and a new sense of curiosity in a developing reader. Be sure to engage in their questions and find ways to make their imaginations come to life. Create a piece of art inspired by the story, visit a location similar to the setting or speak to their inner YouTube star and record a reenactment. The possibilities are endless and so are the rewards!
Fostering a love of reading is the first step in developing strong, confident, readers. But, as our friend, author and reading researcher, Mark Seidenberg says, "You can read until the cows come home" and your child may still struggle with learning how to read. Explicit, systematic, evidence-based reading intervention programs are available and SpellRead tops the list!
- You Can Read, By Helaine Becker & Mark Hoffman
