Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This helpful resource book for parents and educators stresses the importance of establishing strong reading skills in early childhood. Editors M. Susan Burns, Peg Griffin and Catherine E. Snow present a thorough guide to building a strong framework for reading, beginning in infancy and continuing through grade three. In each section, the authors offer practical, hands-on activities to share with children that will ignite interest in reading and build skills. Along with the development of specific reading skills, such as phonological and phonemic awareness, the editors explain how new experiences help expand a child's vocabulary. In addition to recommending children's reading activities at home (such as compiling grocery lists, singing songs, telling stories and, of course, reading), the book describes goals that should be reached at various ages (a kindergartner, for instance, should notice when simple sentences don't make sense). In the final section, the editors reveal that most reading problems can be avoided or resolved in the early years and emphasize the importance of a reader-friendly home, day-care and school environment. Parents will find this a comprehensive resource, and it will be especially useful for teachers planning literacy-enhancing classroom activities.

As a Kindergarten teacher, I have found the Starting Out Right book to be one of the best resources that I have ever used in my classroom. The text is very easy to read and very user friendly. The activities are great for any teacher making the changes in education. I only wish that I had found this book years ago. I would recommend this book for any teacher who is teaching reading strategies. In fact, my district is purchasing this book for ALL kindergarten teachers for our personal resource library.

Format: Paperback
My graduate reading professor introduced me to this book and I now purchase it for all my friends as a baby shower gift. This is a wonderful resource for all parents as it gives suggestions for activities that will shape children into readers and writers and prepare them for school. The book is especially good for parents of young children from birth to kindergarten age. Before kids are in classrooms, they typically have 4 to 5 years at home. During that time, the parents are responsible for their education. It is important they understand how crucial their role is in readying their children for the classroom. Homeschooling parents will also find this information valuable!

The book is fine. Be prepared to wait a long time to receive it. Mine took more than a week beyond the expected arrival dates. Ugh.
