Know someone who’s learning to read?

I have just the book for them! I’ve been looking around for a while for a title to add in to the NurtureStore book shop that is a great resource for children learning to read – and I’ve found it!

I Can Teach My Child To Read, by Jenae Jacobson, is a comprehensive and wonderful resource that will help you nurture your child’s skills and enjoyment of reading. It contains a 10-step program that’s really easy to follow, and it’s suitable for parents and childcarers with children starting their ABCs, right through to those on the way to reading confidently.

What I really like about the book is that it’s really practical, and the activities included are fun – things I know my daughters would enjoy. Jenae is an experienced first grade teacher, so the book is also packed full of her knowledge, which, in turn, gives you the support and confidence to be the person helping your child learn this most important skill.

How to get your copy

If you have a child around three, four, five, six, seven or eight, this is such a wonderful resource to have. It’s available in our shop now and costs just $9.99. It’s an ebook, which means you can buy it anywhere in the world (PayPal takes care of any currency conversion) and then you can read it on screen or print it off, as you prefer.

You can see more details here, or go ahead and buy it now.
