on the laps of their parents."


Nurturing Little Readers: A Parent's Guide To Early Education

By Karen Fernandez


This book is for parents—the first and best teachers a child has. Parents know the intimate details of their toddler’s life. What their child loves. What their child fears. Their child’s strengths and weaknesses. Parents know when a child likes to play calmly and when they are most energetic. They know when their child likes to cuddle and relax and when they want to be independent. Parents know a child’s medical concerns and any limitations or modifications that a child might need. This knowledge matters and is essential to crafting a plan of learning unique to that child. This book is for parents who want to instill a love of reading, writing, and lifelong learning in their child.
