Sparking Imagination

Early language and literacy development begins in the first three years of life and is closely linked to a child’s earliest experience with books and stories. Recent research has proven that early literacy skills start in early infancy. In fact we now know that children gain knowledge of reading, writing and language long before they enter kindergarten (Schickedanz, 1999).

Understanding how the home literacy environment affects the achievement of children’s later language and emergent literacy knowledge has become of increasing interest during the past three decades. The frequency of book reading, interest during book reading and overall attitude toward reading can affect the developing emergent literacy skills in young children.

Summer is the perfect opportunity to enjoy literacy routines at home providing children with meaningful reading experiences and an opportunity to strengthen their attachment with their parents or other family members. A literacy routine is the regular use of a varsity of techniques to enhance children’s abilities to listen, to observe, to imitate and to develop their language, reading and writing skills. By giving children access to using print and to seeing literate role models, all children can learn the functions of print and develop emergent literacy.

The Summer Buying Guide 2013 will provide a list of current children’s books that will allow your child to take a trip using their imagination sparking curiosity!
