Parent Corner

Check back each week for a new idea to try with your children!

This week's Parent Corner Idea (June 23, 2019)

Let your kids ‘read’ to you!

Have you explored the world of wordless picture books? These books can be a wonderful way to encourage your children to tell stories following the pictures in the book. Some of my favourites: The Lion and the Mouse by Jerry Pinkney, Wave by Suzy Lee and Sidewalk Flowers by JonArno Lawson and Sydney Smith.

This is a fun way to engage kids with books over the summer months. They could even read these books to you from the back seat during your next road trip!

Must-Have Books

Are you looking to begin a library for your home or classroom? Are you looking for a gift for a particular age? Refer to these must-have book lists for starting ideas. Some of these picks are new; many are classics.

The age guidelines, are just that, guidelines. Of course, most of these books can be enjoyed at various ages!
