I’ve Never Seen A Sheep: Children’s books To Help Kids Sleep with a Smile (Everything I’ve never seen. Bedtime book for kids 1)
If you’re like most people today, you know kids who don’t like to read, or feel discouraged by how challenging it can be. Maybe even your own kids.
And who can blame them? Today’s world is full of stimulation, bright colors, TVs, computers, phones—and they all take up so much time in our lives that and as a result, our kids are reading less.
But reading and interacting with the environment have been proven to have a powerful impact on children’s educational attainments and even on acquiring basic life skills. So it’s more important than ever today to help our kids love reading by themselves, even from the earliest stages.
How can we teach kids to read? How can we help kids read better? And how can we instill a love of reading in today’s kids so they’ll want to read more and more?
Sigal Adler has developed this interactive series, Everything I’ve Never Seen, out of the belief that despite the fact that the importance of rhyme isn’t emphasized in schools when learning to read and write, this is a method which has come into use more and more over time.
Children with dyslexia, for instance, find it much easier to understand words when they rhyme rather than dissecting them into letters and syllables.
Meeting with children in kindergarten and the early grades, Sigal has met many children who have succeeded in learning to read and write thanks to rhyme. It’s simple, enjoyable – and it works.
Now you and your kids are invited to learn together… grow together… laugh together, as you explore the hilarious interactive world of Everything I’ve Never Seen!
