Carrie Peoples' Reading System: From Babble to Reading (Hardcover)
As author Carrie Peoples began to teach small children, the ideas for Carrie Peoples' Reading System: From Babble to Reading sprung forth by listening to them interact using words they knew how to say but did not know what the words looked like. She then began to experiment by making the symbols we use to make words: circles, lines, and dots. These symbols, through various combinations, make what we call words. This eye-opening text sheds light on how simple reading can truly be when broken down into the fun and surprisingly easy system Peoples has developed. Peoples lays out everything you need to know to help your child develop thinking skills, vocabulary skills and get an early start on reading skills.
