Calling All Chefs

Living out the pages of a book helps to bring a story to life. Plan a real or pretend meal, snack, or tea party that involves your child helping you cook. For example, you might choose to make stone soup, green eggs and ham, or milk and cookies. Take a picture of your child enjoying the meal and keep it on your refrigerator. It will be a feast to remember.

What I think . . .

There are all kinds of readers. Some—like my daughter and me—are never without a book to read for pleasure. Others—like my son—are careful, analytical, and curious readers who read primarily to seek information from the page.

No matter what kind of reader your child becomes, you can help him or her get started. After all, you are your child’s first teacher. And, best of all, you can have some fun in the process.

Please feel free to share your own ideas. Tell me about ways you've enjoyed reading with your child.
