Item description for Get Ready to Read!: Making Child Care Work for You (Redleaf Guides for Parents) by Sally Moomaw...
When are young children ready to learn to read? Odds are, they've already started.
From story time to playing games, young children are constantly trying to understand and relate language to the world around them. While it may look like they are just playing, children are actually taking the first steps toward literacy.
The third in a new series for parents of children in child care, Get Ready to Read! offers parents creative ways to work with their child care provider to build a foundation and love for reading and writing in young children.
Adapted from the work of best-selling authors and early childhood educators, this unique guide helps parents understand the theories behind how children learn to read and write and gives them fun, engaging activities designed to complement their child's literacy experiences at home and in daycare.
Sally Moomaw is the professional development coordinator and an adjunct instructor at the Arlitt Child and Family Research and Education Center at the University of Cincinnati. Brenda Hieronymus is an early childhood education specialist and adjunct instructor at the Arlitt Child and Family Research and Education Center at the University of Cincinnati.
