The Sweetest Books for Spring
Inside: The best spring books for kids
Yep, I heard it as well. The groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter for us in the southeast. (sigh)
But who else has hints of spring trickling in their backyard?
Tulips are blooming, and the cherry blossoms are brightening up our walks.
Those of you in snowboots, spring is coming!
So, what better way to get excited about the warmer weather than to start reading about Spring?
Before diving into the list, let's take a look at where reading comprehension is headed.
By Kindergarten, children will be asked to with prompting and support, retell familiar stories, including key details.
Children will also be asked to with prompting and support, compare and contrast the adventures and experiences of characters in familiar stories.
YOU can do this now with your preschooler to prepare for Kindergarten, along with practicing balance that will also help with reading skills. How? Read here about how the two relate.
What all of this means is:
Read a lot.
Relate the story back to your preschooler's world.
How does it compare with their life?
How does the book relate to others?
How does the book relate to the world around them?
Read. Talk. Relate. Repeat.
