A program for parents and professionals on how to raise kids who love to read, featuring interviews with childhood development experts, advice from librarians, tips from authors and children’s book publishers, and reading recommendations for kids from birth up to age five. Every parent wants to give his or her child a competitive advantage. In Born Reading, publishing insider (and new dad) Jason Boog explains how that can be as simple as opening a book. Studies have shown that interactive reading—a method that creates dialogue as you read together—can raise a child’s IQ by more than six points. In fact, interactive reading can have just as much of a determining factor on a child’s IQ as vitamins and a healthy diet. But there’s no book that takes the cutting-edge research on interactive reading and shows parents, teachers, and librarians how to apply it to their day-to-day lives with kids, until now. Born Reading provides step-by-step instructions on interactive reading and advice for developing your child’s interest in books from the time they are born. Boog has done the research, talked with the leading experts in child development, and worked with them to compile the “Born Reading Essential Books” lists, offering specific titles tailored to the interests and passions of kids from birth to age five. But reading can take many forms—print books as well as ebooks and apps—and Born Reading also includes tips on how to use technology the right way to help (not hinder) your child’s intellectual development. Parents will find advice on which educational apps best supplement their child’s development, when to start introducing digital reading to their child, and how to use tech to help create the readers of tomorrow. Born Reading will show anyone who loves kids how to make sure the children they care about are building a powerful foundation in literacy from the beginning of life.

With young children gaining access to a dizzying array of games, videos and other digital media, will they ever learn to read? The answer is yes – if we ensure that the media at children's fingertips is harnessed to promote the skills and knowledge that enable reading, instead of undermining them. Tap, Click, Read helps educators and parents become more successful at supporting young children's early literacy skills in the "digital wild west." With compelling text, videos, and interactive graphics, the book answers such questions as: In what ways could new technologies promote the adult-child interactions that help children develop language and literacy skills that help them become strong readers? Who are the pioneers in this field? What will it take to create a future in which parents and teachers become adept at using media to build a foundation for children's reading? Beyond traditional literacy, what are the digital competencies that today's young children will need to master in an increasingly complex and interconnected world? The authors provide findings from an ongoing examination of the app marketplace that identifies bright spots and pitfalls--a first-of-its-kind analysis, providing statistics on what kind of reading and other early learning apps are on offer in the free-for-all of the Apple app store and Google Play marketplaces. They also provide toolkits (such as e-media resource lists and community audit worksheets) for schools and community organizations to use as they foster literacy-focused relationships with parents and build high-tech learning spaces for tomorrow's readers. Rather than telling parents and teachers to push technology to the margins, Tap, Click, Read shows them how to put technology to work in serving children's needs and helping to address the crippling problem of low reading skills across the country.

A new, interactive approach to storytime, The Whole Book Approach was developed in conjunction with the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art and expert author Megan Dowd Lambert's graduate work in children's literature at Simmons College, offering a practical guide for reshaping storytime and getting kids to think with their eyes. Traditional storytime often offers a passive experience for kids, but the Whole Book approach asks the youngest of readers to ponder all aspects of a picture book and to use their critical thinking skills. Using classic examples, Megan asks kids to think about why the trim size of Ludwig Bemelman's Madeline is so generous, or why the typeset in David Wiesner's Caldecott winner,The Three Pigs, appears to twist around the page, or why books like Chris Van Allsburg's The Polar Express and Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar are printed landscape instead of portrait. The dynamic discussions that result from this shared reading style range from the profound to the hilarious and will inspire adults to make children's responses to text, art, and design an essential part of storytime. From the Hardcover edition.
