How do children become good readers? In Reading Together, educational consultant Diane W. Frankenstein shares the secret: guiding children to find an appropriate book and talking with them about the story helps them connect with what they read.
This engaging guide shares advice for parents, teachers, librarians, and caregivers on how to help children find what to read, and then through conversation, how to find meaning and pleasure in their reading. With more than 100 great book recommendations for kids from Pre-K through grade six, as well as related conversation starters, Reading Together offers a winning equation to turn children into lifelong readers.
"Education consultant Frankenstein believes that the right book in the right hands at the right time is only the first step on the journey to developing confident readers....The bulk of the book is made up of 100-plus "Story Pages", which include both "Read Together" and "Read Alone" age ranges, story synopses, thematic keywords, sample discussion questions, and read-alikes. Teachers and librarians will go wild for this one." -- Library Journal
