www.love2read.co.uk/ sent me at (precious little worlds) blog the opportunity to review one of there make your own books for free in exchange for my honest review for my blog .
|The aim of each unique book is to help your child develop a love of reading. It does this by presenting photographs which reflect your child's world and relating them to simple words. Research shows that if your child loves books they will learn to read much faster and you will be encouraging a lifelong love of reading.|
The key words in each book are known as high frequency words which are some of the first words your child will be taught to recognise when they start school. As they start to recognise these key words on sight (also know as the 'look and say' method of learning) their confidence builds.
Over the years the way of teaching children to learn to read has changed, although the current favoured method in British primaries is through phonics there is still a lot of emphasis on comprehension, high frequency words (often referred to as tricky words) and reading for pleasure.
