This is for the parents out there.
I have three young kids at home and we’re working hard to make them eager and lifelong learners and readers. We read to them nightly but also encourage them to read books on their own, even our two younger boys who can’t yet read much but can certainly “read the pictures” and start to correlate images with words.
There are some amazing apps out there to support new readers and One More Story is among my favorites. They feature some of the best and most popular children’s books read aloud with engaging voices and music, including an “automatic mode” that highlights words on the pages as they are spoken.
Sure, it’s screen time, but it’s making our kids more engaged and interested readers.
Definitely worth checking out.
