Story Time Reads for the Week of May 14

apple pie treeEarly Literacy Tip:
When you choose books for your children, they like the ones that have pictures of things that are familiar to them. So, here is one with a picture of an apple.  You can talk about the apple in the picture, its color, its shape. Then get a real apple and show it to your child. Talk about how it tastes (sweet), how it feels (round and smooth), the sound it makes when you bite it –- CRUNCH!  By showing your child the real object, you are helping them realize that pictures represent real things.  Later they will also understand that printed words represent real things as well. This develops print awareness.
