My son just started second grade and they are reading more than ever. He has been learning to read for two years now and he is doing such a fantastic job. I am so proud of him. The UsBorne reading kits are fabulous for learning readers like him. It is a great way to build his confidence as a reader. We do a lot of reading every night and he enjoys doing Reading Eggs on his computer. I think the key to having a successful reading is definitely practice. We read every night. He reads himself and I still read him stories before bed time. He absolutely loves doing this before bed. He is enjoying the Jack and Annie treehouse book set now. It has some very fun and imaginative stories in it.
About Our Sponsor
Since having grandchildren Colleen became enthralled with Children’s Books most especially ones that keep a child’s attention and can hold up with repeated use. When she was introduced to Usborne Books, Colleen decided to become an Independent Consultant for Usborne and Kane Miller books. She loves bringing quality books to kids of all ages. And I believe Usborne & Kane Miller Books have the best selection of non-fiction books for children, on the market.
30 years ago Peter Usborne pioneered a new generation of books that have proven it is possible to create books that compete with the vast media that attracts children today. From activity book and neat fiction series, to internet-linked science and history encyclopedias, Usborne does books better.
Kane Miller books come from all over the world to bring a different feel, culture, or a silly story that kids everywhere can enjoy. Fantastic fiction series make Kane Miller a wonderful choice for the young readers in your life.
