How can I do reading with my child? 

Look at the page and talk about

what you see.



Your child can try to read the

sentences in ‘Young Readers’.

Ask your child the story check questions at the end of the book. 

"Young Readers" are included on every page of the storybooks. These are specifically designed to use very simple sentences, with only one or two syllable words. With the "Younger Readers" section, junior readers learn to read aloud and build their confidence. It is a great start to reading stories on their own!

Bring home a surprise for your child today!
