Who: All parents committed to literacy and FUN welcome…and their little ones of course 🙂 (don’t forget to invite dads)
Why: we aim to inspire parents to really get into a book and show their kids how much fun it can be. By doing something different like focussing on a book for a month, we hope it will renew some excitement in the home and get your ‘fun parent’ on! And for every fun moment you have, please post on our ‘I raise my kids’ facebook page to inspire more parents to take book reading to another level.
When: each month, for a month
Where: having fun with your children with literacy in your home or taking the book to daycare/school for show and tell
What’s involved: having fun with books! If you don’t have the book, look into buying it or reserving it at your library. Otherwise, remember to announce to your little ones that ‘we’re going to read this book a lot for a few weeks. Let’s have some fun with it!!!’.
Watch our facebook page throughout the month for ideas on:
– how to read it to different age groups
– concepts to explain
– fun activities relating to the book
Take ideas and again, please share ideas 🙂
We are hoping that by the end of the month you will have ‘done the book to death’ but had lots of fun with your children (and taught them plenty) at the same time. It does take effort but remember – the more you put in, the more you get back 🙂
Stay tuned for the June book…
