I'm Ready... How to Prepare Your Child for Reading Success by Hanen
Another super resource from The Hanen Centre®.
To learn to read and write successfully, children need a solid foundation of early literacy skills. This book has been written specifically for parents to help them build critical early literacy skills before their child goes to school.
It takes the most current research in emergent literacy and breaking it down into fun, easy-to-use tips and strategies, this book helps even the busiest parent make early literacy learning a part of every day.
Helps parents to turn routine activities into enjoyable opportunities to prepare for reading success.
"Greenberg and Weitzman's how-to book is as beautiful as it
is useful. The thoughtful layout will allow parents to read the book
differently each time: once for the illustrated examples; once for the
highlighted tips; and once to learn more deeply about the strategies that
promote language. Here, the use of acronyms makes it easier to remember these
helpful strategies. Also, Try-it-out outlines at the end of each chapter
provide parents with an easy way to integrate and apply all that they've
learned. As a researcher, I am truly impressed with Weitzman and Greenberg's
tour de force – they were able to synthesize 30 years worth of research on
early literacy and present it to parents in a fun and easy manner."

– by giving parents the tools they need to prevent it in the first place."
