Kids Reading to Kids
books improve reading and character development by creating
a nurturing and motivating environment for the beginning
reader. Learn more about this approach. The books
take a somewhat non-traditional approach to children's
readers, avoiding fictional characters and settings, and
cartoon-style illustrations. Rather, the principal character
generally is a beginning reader who the reader can relate to
quickly. Illustrations focus on real beginning readers. The
books emphasize nurturing the beginning reader through
positive feedback and accomplishment. Character development
is a key aspect of every story. Books are tested and
validated in classroom settings before publishing.
Kids Reading to Kids books are
written specifically for beginning readers through
grade four; and are especially useful for kids who
may be reading below grade-level. The books have the greatest value when used
in an environment where the beginning reader reads
to a younger non-reader age one through kindergarten.
