Kids Pick - Clifford Phonics Fun Reading Program

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

This is my post for Kids' Picks segment on the 5 Minutes For Books blog.

A few weeks ago we went to a Trade and Swap Playdate where everyone brought things from home to swap with others. We brought a lot of things, clothes and toys that the Little One just doesn't wear or play with anymore but we came home with a lot of things too so I think it pretty much just evened out. One of the things we picked up was a set of Phonics Books staring Clifford The Big Red Dog. Now we have seen Clifford but we don't have cable and our antenna doesn't pull in PBS so we rarely get to watch Clifford. But my son loves these books, he is starting to understand that letters make words and that words are what I am reading when I sit and read him a story. These books are built to help teach your little one to read and so they are simple and repetitive he has even started recognizing a few of the repeated words. I am not sure if he is really into the story, Clifford himself or being able to pick out the words but whatever it is he picks these books time and time again. I get a thrill out of seeing him actually pick out the right words when I ask him or read a word when I point to it, so we can read these as many times as he likes.

Currently "Reading":
Book - Doctor Who: The Many Hands by Dale Smith
E-Book - A Wife's Guide to In-laws: How to Gain Your Husband's Loyalty Without Killing His Parents by Jenna D. Barry
Audio - Not listening to anything right now.

2 your two cents:

That swap & play sounds like a blast! And what a cool thing to find! I loved Clifford growing up and I can't wait until my son gets hooked on the big red dog.

Thanks for linking up!
