Welcome to Bloggers Read Across America (BRAG) — Promoting Children’s Reading and Literacy
Children’s Literacy Headline: During Kindergarten and first grade, child literacy becomes more focused on print material. Alphabet books are great for learning to match sounds with the letters. Reading picture books with a few words and sentences helps children develop early literacy skills.
Today, we have a special treat — an interview with Dan Kairys, MD, co-author of Sunbelievable. Dan’s an avid read-aloud Dad and storyteller who shares a love of language with his 3 young trilingual children. Every night, the kids wait for him to arrive home from work — sometimes after a long day of general surgery at the county hospital in Belle Glade, FL. No matter the time, and often late, they all participate in story time with Dad. . .
Head on over to http://www.slimybookworm.com/blog/ to hear the interview! Dan shares what makes writing for and reading to his kids an amazing experience — even when there’s no time for either!
