Z is for Moose

Z is for MooseAlphabet books are a great way to help your child with letter knowledge. Z is for Moose by Kelly Bingham is a particularly fun book! Zebra is directing all of the objects as they appear in this alphabet book, but he forgets about Moose. Moose decides this is not going to work and tries to appear on as many pages as possible. As you read this story to your child, talk about all the letters you see and the sounds they make.

Play Your Way to Reading

I Spy With My Little EyeIn the book I Spy With My Little Eye by Edward Gibbs, you can play an “I Spy” game. This is a simple, fun game you can play anytime, anywhere. When we play with the ideas that we find in a book, we are helping to make the story part of a child’s life. This supports print motivation, which is an interest in and enjoyment of books and reading and is one of the six early literacy skills.
