Please hop on over to another of my favorite blogs, Growing Book By Book, to read excellent ideas for helping kids practice reading with a buddy. As you know, practicing reading over and over again with your child can get monotonous or turn into a struggle. Finding a buddy to read to provides them with a fun and real way to share their new ability to read. I personally love having beginning readers read to babies because they can read the simpler board books without feeling like the book is lame or too easy for them. Enjoy!
