Help your child fall in love with books
While other books on the market focus on how to read to babies this book takes the process a step further by showing parents how they can come up with storytelling activities and creative suggestions to promote pre-reading and numeracy skills with their toddler.
It includes a range of popular early years books covering different themes such as potty training, sharing toys, eating habits, playing nicely and then bigger issues like starting school, making friends, new siblings, children who are different, bereavement etc. Parents can dip into the books at any point for hints, tips and practical advice that they can easily do with the resources they have at home.
“'The subtitle of this book is just what I hope every parent will do with their children - "Help your child fall in love with books"...this book explains how parents can use specific books to the greatest benefit...Full of inspiring photos and very easy to read, I would strongly recommend this to all parents and to teachers too.'” – www.parentsintouch.co.uk (July 2011)
