Poems to Learn to Read By
is two books in one. It is a collection of poems that children from birth to school age will enjoy with adults. Some of the poems are humorous, some are informative, and some are evocative or instructive. Some tell stories, and others simply play with sounds and words. The poems address the interests, feelings, and questions of young children in words that they can understand and enjoy. And many of the poems lend themselves to acting out, singing, chanting, or choral reading. Poems to Learn to Read By is also a valuable guide for caregivers, early childhood educators, and parents. Authors Betty Bardige and Marilyn Segal offer information and ideas on how to use the poems to strengthen children’s language, build their literacy skills, help them manage strong emotions, and enhance their relationships.
