My recommendations this week:
Do you have children who struggle with spelling or phonics? Perhaps you need to read this book–I ordered a copy this week.
By internalizing the rules & logic of the language yourself, you’ll be in a much better place to explain when natural opportunities arise to do so.
So it’s pretty much a dream come true to have started this read-aloud with my three little people. Sitting around the breakfast table before opening the cover, I tell them how I first discovered it when in the 7th grade and how the heroine changed my young life.
And this illustrated junior library edition is just lovely if you’re looking to add it to your collection, too!
