“READ-IT-AGAIN!” December: MY FIRST CHANUKAH by Tomie dePaola

DAY 346 of 365 Days of Literacy for Kids!

Join “READ-IT-AGAIN!” during DECEMBER on 365 Days of Literacy for Kids!

Reading aloud to your kids & grandkids is a wonderful and proven way to improve vocabulary and increase reading comprehension and thinking skills by connecting directly with a book… its words, its story, its message, its magic. The more books in early childhood, the greater the chances for reading success.

As a *Reading Teacher, Mom & Grandma, the words “READ-IT-AGAIN!” are music to my ears! That’s why I’m finishing my year of 365 Days of Literacy for Kids with 31 picture books, all winter and/or holiday-themed, read aloud by me.

Each picture book is hand-selected from my wonderful local East Greenwich, RI Free Library, and I encourage adventures to your own town or city library during this time of year… to calm, collect and still the swirl of busy.

Sit back, enjoy… and press replay to “READ-IT-AGAIN!” (if you must sneak from the room)!

December 12th: Today’s “READ-IT-AGAIN!” picture book is MY FIRST CHANUKAH by Tomie dePaola. This is a perfect book for toddlers and young children who are beginning to recognize the familiar objects of Chanukah…

Join me here each day in December for “READ-IT-AGAIN!” – on 365 DAYS OF LITERACY FOR KIDS! – fun, easy and completely do-able!

  1. I <3 Tomie. I met him when I was a very young kiddo, perhaps 6 or 7. I felt like I was in the presence of the most important person in the world. 🙂 One of my favorite authors!
