Susan here… I’m so thrilled to share a few of my favorite tips from the new book “Raising a Rock-Star Reader” by Amy Mascott and Allison McDonald. I was lucky to receive an advance copy so I could review it here. Just so you know, I’ve included affiliate links and you can preorder the book now. It will be released on November 10th.
I just wish I’d had this book 10 years ago.
When my first baby girl was born, I didn’t yet know Amy Mascott and Allison McDonald. Their fabulous blogs didn’t yet exist and pinning wasn’t yet a verb.
In those early years, I read mountains of books to both my girls and I continue to do so to this day… but I really could have used some creative ideas to help make teaching my girls to read more fun.
Now, as I read through the fabulous 75 tips Amy and Allison share in their new book Raising a Rock-Star Reader, I find myself saying, “Why didn’t I think of that?”
Well, I suppose I never thought of many of these ideas because I’m not a trained teacher with years of experience teaching kids to read.
I was just a busy mom who desperately wanted her kids to love reading.
My girls are now 8 and 10 years old, and I wish I could go back in time and try some of these fun ideas.
Here are 3 of my favorite tips from the book…
