The countdown to kindergarten and preschool has begun. Don't wait! Be proactive and prepare your child for a successful transition into this new and important experience. It will lay the foundation for your little one's future.
“Let’s Go Crazy”…errr…book crazy!
We invite you to join us in the celebration of “El Día de Los Niños” by picking up a book and reading with your child, like now.
“El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children's Day/Book Day), commonly known as Día, is a nationally recognized initiative that emphasizes the importance of literacy for all children from all backgrounds” - http://dia.ala.org/content/about-d%C3%ADa.
You can visit a library with your little one, or read any age-appropriate book or magazine from home. If you like fashion, read your child a magazine about fashion. Or are cars more your speed? That’s fine too. The goal is to just start reading together.
See our dog, Maxie, sharing her favorite book! It's called "A Crazy Day at the Critter Cafe" by Barbara Odanaka, and it's one of our favorites too. In fact, we just read it last night.
There are more ideas and activities at El Día de Los Niños Web site: http://dia.ala.org/content/about-d%C3%ADa.
And my book, SCHOOL IS NEW TO ME: A Beginner’s Guide to Starting School, has other literacy-building ideas too.
