You’d think we had enough to read with our overflowing bookshelves, but our family just can’t resist a stack of library books
What you’ll notice is the range of reading/comprehension levels for each child. This is deliberate.
- Longer books build the two year old’s comprehension and attention span
- Simple books help the four year old’s sight word recognition and storytelling abilities
- Picture books develop the eight year’s confidence as he reads aloud to his siblings; Complex non-fiction tied to his interests encourages a love of reading.
