Raise a Child Who Loves to Read How do kids really learn to read? And how can you encourage interest in reading and writing from the start? In Raising Confident Readers, based on the five phases of literacy development, Dr. J. Richard Gentry provides fun and easy ways to teach your child to read and write successfully. When it comes to language, the most critical brain growth happens in early childhood. Raising Confident Readers shows you how to activate and accelerate this capacity for learning: The key is to introduce the right activities at the right time. Whether your child is a baby or toddler, in preschool or kindergarten, or first or second grade, Dr. Gentry helps you identify your child’s literacy phase and take the next steps to build writing, reading, and spelling skills. You’ll discover:How your child’s brain learns to read—and why encouraging drawing and scribbling is as essential as reading aloudThe best at-home activities to develop literacy early, naturally, and joyfullyRecommended children’s books for each phaseStrategies for overcoming dyslexia, delayed reading, and other challengesChecklists and a milestones diary to celebrate your child’s progressAs your child moves through the five phases, they’ll soon be sounding out and spelling words correctly, reading chapter books independently, and writing creative stories on their own.
