To encourage the Big Brother to learn to read on his own, i had noticed that he prefers only certain books with characters that he is familiar with, like The Backyardigans, Dora & Diego, Peppa Pigs and etc. He is also highly keen in books about monsters and superheroes too! Well, every child needs to own their favorite books before they can pick up the sight words and learn to read on their own, so i had been looking out for and purchasing books of the above genres to encourage him.
From The Groovy Giraffe, I added more interesting books at affordable prices, for Big Brother into our mini home library!
He is into Diego's adventures lately so I was happy to add on one more Diego's book to our collection. Dora's books are very good for preparing children for their firsts - such as going to the Doctor or Dentist etc.
|Diego Dolphin Mission S$5.90, Dora's Book of Manners S$7.90 and Word Power S$12.90|
I also came across this book which I thought will be so helpful to help Big Brother learn new words and master simple spelling, which is something that i had wanted to do. Most importantly, I do not have to DIY the word tiles on my own! For something S$12.90, i think it really saves me a lot of time to DIY myself!
|Word Power S$12.90, activities and word tiles inclusive, to help child master 100 words|
If you are into flash cards and activity books like i love using them, The Groovy Giraffe has them too! I was so happy to have won a copy of the Wink to Learn: Speak & Read Chinese 6 DVDs program recently! It helps to complement our home learning for Chinese Language! :)
