I love to read. Reading is my favorite hobby and it doesn't always matter what genre for me to just enjoy to read. I have always wanted my kids to have the same love of reading that I have. At times, it is not as easy to get them to voluntarily pick up a book and start to read. With TV, movies and video games always being more exciting, I try to encourage them to find a book they are drawn to.
The Smithsonian Readers collection offers many levels to keep up with your child's reading level as they grow. Starting with picture books and gradually increasing the reading levels your child can be thrilled with all the wonders of the world.
My son loved this book. He loves Sharks and sea creatures so this was the perfect volume to get him started. I have seen him pick it up by himself multiple times now and start reading. I love seeing him so excited. He keeps asking me questions like, “Mom, did you know dolphins have 100 teeth?”
Every page is full color and packed full of interesting facts that will keep your child reading till the last page. Each book contains multiple subjects like this one has Ancient Egypt, Wild Weather, Rain Forest Animals, The United States, The Planet, and Sharks. This wonderful book also has 36 small cards that you can tear out. Each card is also full color and contains a fact. These are great to play games with or just keep on hand to test your memory.
I loved this book because it really made my son so interested in learning and reading on his own. We will be looking at the other levels since this one was such a big hit! Check out all the topics and levels that are offered HERE and watch your kids pick up a book on their own.
