Early Literacy Tip

Children who grow up thinking reading is fun will be more likely to put in the effort it takes when learning to read in school.  Children enjoy being actively involved with stories.  The opportunity to speak out repeated phrases and refrains brings more excitement and fun to reading and listening to picture books.  Have fun reading out loud with the children in your care, trying books with repeated refrains so the kids can help you with the story.  To give you some suggestions, we’ve compiled a list of suitable picture books with repeated refrains.  Click the blue list title below to see the full list.
