should you continue reading to your children once they know how to read by themselves?
1. Remember when you learned to drive a car? you could only concentrate on - shifting gears, driving carefully- you couldn't enjoy the view or daydream, right?
Reading in the early years is the same: It's technical and doesn't give you a reading enjoyable experience
2. The books Children can read in their first reading years on there own, are of a low standard of their intellectual needs. The books that can fascinate an 8-year-old is not necessarily a book they can read alone.
3. If they are forced to read by themselves, they succeed to read books that are not really fascinating for them (because fascinating books they cannot still read) so then they come to the unfortunate conclusion that books are childish and boring. (don't forget- screen time is always their seducing and tempting with quick and easy wins)
4. Reading to your children is a temporary...
Feel like having a nice laugh and doing it through a great children's book?
The book "Pete is a Pizza" by William Stieg is a Smart picture book
that is full of humor.
It reminds me of how sometimes we as Parents can solve so many issues with our kids, using humor.
It also reminds me of how fun it is for children to play nonsense games.
So in this video I guide you, through the book to participate in a funny activity.
If you are cool enough to play along and do it, P L E A S E!!!
