Children learn to read with real books
Reading instruction that is built around real children’s books (as opposed to books written specifically for reading instruction) is inherently enjoyable and purposeful. When children learn to read, the process should always be gratifying, interesting and meaningful. Learning to read with “real” books has its own rewards built right in.
When reading, getting the meaning of the text is the primary goal of the reader. With experience the child will learn to develop a meaningful story and images in her mind as she reads. Reading meaningful stories, full of rich language and vivid imagery will be more engaging for both children and adults. A wonderful story, well told and illustrated is one a child will want to return to again and again. And, of course, repetition and practice are two essential elements of improving reading skills.
Children who learn to read with real children’s literature will reap lifelong benefits. It will ignite an enduring relationship with reading that will bring countless hours of pleasure and knowledge as they grow.
