I am looking forward to blogging for and about my Kumon learning centre in this new space!
I have been an avid reader since I was 6 years old and determinedly taught myself to read. Dr Seuss was a huge favourite of mine in my early years, and I was pleased to learn recently that Random House will be publishing stories of his previously unknown to most – see ‘The Bippolo Seed’: The ‘Lost’ Dr. Seuss Stories : NPR
Do you know what Dr Seuss’ one word of advice for children was?
Also, NPR has featured works by another beloved children’s author: Shel Silverstein’s Poems Live On In ‘Every Thing’ : NPR
Having been such a voracious reader for so long, I have an enriched vocabulary and haven’t been afraid to use it, even with my children, so I was relieved to see that parents are now exhorted to use our Big, Big Words to encourage our children’s vocabulary development.
