I am fascinated by the process of literacy and language development, and that fascination only grows as I read and learn more about it. If you are interested in learning more, I recommend these books:
The Read-Aloud Handbook by Jim Trelease
Growing a Reader From Birth by Diane McGuinness
Baby Read-Aloud Basics by Caroline Blakemore and Barbara Weston Ramirez
Reading Magic by Mem Fox
Smart-Wiring Your Baby's Brain by Winifred Conklin
These books follow many of the same principles and are based on some common research, but they each provide a unique perspective. When read together, they give a comprehensive and useful guide to understanding how children learn language and how to help them become life-long readers.
The links will take you to Better World Books where you can buy many of them for $3 or $4 (with free shipping!)
