“READ-IT-AGAIN!” December: WHEN I’M SLEEPY by Jane R. Howard & illustrated by Lynne Cherry

DAY 335 of 365 Days of Literacy for Kids!

Get ready for “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 1st: Today’s “READ-IT-AGAIN!” picture book is When I’m Sleepy, written by Jane R. Howard & illustrated by Lynne Cherry.  This is a soothing, fanciful story that invites children to imagine, but also shows them that the sweetest dreams are found in their own soft beds.

 

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