Kaylee’s Adventures is a heart warming tale that provides hours of family time interacting with her adventures in each chapter and the Bible stories that she shares.

It is said that children are made good readers in the laps of their parents. Parents who read aloud are setting the foundation for literacy development. It is the single most important activity for reading success (Bredekamp, Copple, & Neuman, 2000). It provides children with a demonstration of phrased, fluent reading (Fountas & Pinnell, 1996). It reveals the rewards of reading, and develops the listener’s interest in books and desire to be a reader (Mooney, 1990).

As the the little kids and older children prepare for Halloween please take extra care on the roads when you are driving.

For those that will be out on Halloween night taking part in the festivities, please be safe.

Have a happy, safe and healthy Halloween.

Many Blessings,
Tanya

quality family fun for those long dreary winter days

As the long dreary days of winter approach Kaylee’s Adventures will provide plenty of opportunities to engage your children in their everyday life, in Kaylee’s world and with the scriptures that Kaylee interacts with. Children use their real life adventures to help them understand books, and books can help children understand their real life. Invite your children to respond with enthusiasm and understanding while reading and during the parent/child discussion section.

There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.

–Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

Kaylee’s Adventures provides an opportunity to explore communities, issues, common fears, and the discussion section invites children to respond with enthusiasm and understanding.

Children need to see themselves as well as other people, cultures, communities, and issues in the books that their parents, teachers, or older siblings read to them. They need to see how characters in books handle the same fears, interests, and concerns that they experience (Barton & Booth, 1990). Children use real life situations to help them understand books, and books help children understand real life situations. By connecting to the characters, their situations, or the settings in which the stories took place are learning to think and act like good readers.sept pics sorted 031

read early and read often

Kaylee’s Adventures is an excellent way for families to bond and have great faith based discussions around everyday life. Parents who read out loud to the their children nurture the parent child relationship and develop a positive association with books and reading. It is widely recognized that reading out loud to a child is the single most important activity leading to language development. Among other things, reading aloud will build word-sound awareness in your children and be a potent predictor of reading success.

Reading aloud to young children is not only one of the best activities to stimulate language and cognitive skills; it also builds motivation, curiosity, and memory. Bardige, B. Talk to Me, Baby!(2009), Paul H Brookes Pub Co.
