How to choose what book to read
Books offer an important opportunity for children to learn about/understand people, places, and lives different from their own (Windows), which is crucial for the development of empathy.
Readers step into stories through imagination and become part of that world (Sliding Glass Doors).
Other books give readers the opportunity to see their own reflection (Mirrors) -- characters who look like they do -- which is crucial for building confidence and self-esteem.
"If we have the time and resources, we can find that book and help to change that child's life... help us to understand each other better by helping to change our attitudes towards difference...
We can celebrate both our differences and our similarities, because together they are what make us all human." (Bishop, 1990)
- How do you know if a book is the right level for you? Use the 5 finger rule . Hold up one finger when you hit a word that makes you struggle or skip. If you get to 5 fingers held up, that is the stop sign: this book is too hard for you right now. If you only have 2 or 3 fingers up, that would be a good book to read on your own.
