Resources for Preschool Parents – Helping Children To Begin Reading Books

Valerie Garfield, an editor at Simon & Schuster, has started a great new blog on sharing books with preschoolers called “Bookmom.”  Recent posts are “How to Read a Wordless Book,” “How to Read a Book to a Baby and Toddler,” and “Sometimes I Read Books I Hate.”  I’m adding her blog to the Resources tab on my website and strongly encourage you to take a look.

We never stop hearing about how important it is read to preschoolers but it can be a frustrating experience!  The lap audience sometimes prefers chewing a book to looking at it and even 3 and 4-year-olds can do more squirming than listening.  The observations of this self-described “publishing mom” are right on the money.
