Award-winning author Jackie French knows what it is to struggle with reading and literacy. Drawing on her own experience with dyslexia, Jackie has written this book to help parents identify the possible reading difficulties their children may have. This isn't just another reading book, and Jackie does challenge some of the traditional theories about teaching reading.
All children learn differently, and Jackie offers many fun and rewarding ways to help launch your child into literacy. These include games for coordination, concentration and focus, as well as helpful steps to kickstart your child into reading and to foster a life-long love of books.
Rocket Your Child Into Reading' begins with chapters on very early development and goes right through to reading for teenagers. Parents will discover new ways of teaching the alphabet, spelling, writing and more, as well as receiving guidance on how to ensure that you don't turn your kids off reading. Jackie provides an excellent chapter on specific learning problems, how to recognise them and who to go to for help.
A refresher and helpful guide to getting your child on track for reading techniques and solving any reading problems that may occur.
