Passion #1

Standard

Welcome to the world of a Childless Mother!  Here I will share all of the fascinating things I find about kids, adventures I undertake with kids “on loan” to me by their parents and occasionally the heartache of unfulfilled desire.  Child development amazes me and the wonder of learning and sharing, teaching and loving kids is a life giving force to my heart and soul.  There are SO many adventures to be had with kids!

Here is one of the things I am MOST passionate about:

Reading to Kids!

 

DID YOU KNOW

*Comprehension levels from listening and reading do not equal out until around 9th grade!  Even if your child has learned to read, continue reading to them!  There are SO may benefits!

*The children’s chapter books and beyond that are being published today have significantly more words with single syllables and sentences with simple construction than otherwise.  Expose your children to classic literature; their vocabulary and literary intelligence will soar!

*The Read Aloud Handbook by Jim Trelease is a fabulous resource on this subject.  Check it out!  And let me know what you think!

Along these lines I frequently explore the world of children’s literature and keep up on the trends.  I even dream of one day writing children’s books of my own!  I look forward to sharing what I find.
