Parents today know what educators have known for decades: there are enormous brain benefits associated with simply reading aloud from birth. Parents also know that reading should involve more than opening a book, pronouncing the words, and closing the book, but few have been taught how to truly unlock the unique power within the pages of a children's book.
Written for parents by teachers, Bookworm Babies applies The Bookworm Babies Method -- a nurturing and empowering strategy for enhancing the benefits of book-sharing through conversation starters -- to 20 popular book titles. Parents who seek to maximize the formation of neural connections during reading and bonding time will be guided to move beyond the words on the page and extrapolate embedded concepts related to math, science, language, art, music, and critical thinking.
