Our young Sharks love it when you read aloud to them. Find the best book for you and them.
If you are looking for the next book to read out loud to your children, read to the end of this article to explore the link for finding the perfect book for Early Learners.
Why read aloud to our littlest Sharks? We know the answer the children will shout, “It is fun!"
There are actually plenty of other important reasons to keep reading aloud as part of the bedtime routine for as long as possible. Our Library and Literacy Specialist, Jen Currie, gives us some of those reasons:
Reading aloud strengthens your relationship and allows for uninterrupted bonding
Children are exposed to greater varieties of vocabulary and syntax than everyday conversations
Brain development is enhanced
It creates a sense of peace after a long and busy day
Children will have positive memories and be more likely to love reading as they age
Their imaginations can grow in unique ways with fiction
They can learn and understand more about the world through nonfiction
It increases a child’s attention span
Reading aloud also creates a safe space to explore big feelings
Mostly… it IS fun
Early Learning books are far from hard to come by but the surplus in options can make it difficult to choose ones your child will enjoy. To solve this problem, we have created an interactive “story” that suggests books based on five popular stories you may have already read to your child. If you have not read any of the books listed, then there is a 6th option that allows you to scroll through the books we recommend. Hopefully, by the end, you will have found several new books that your Early Learner(s) will love.
