Loved the show this week especially at the end when you both started laughing. I just wanted to thank both of you for sharing the books on audio with us I was wondering the same thing. My son doesn’t like to read much but loves to listen to story books on the computer. We have used Cd’s like the Arthur and I would like to get Reader Rabbit maybe sometime in the next couple of months. I would love it if you could make a short a list or talk about books that would easy for a first grader would like to read. I know I have a hard time finding books that both my kids would like and that would easy for them to start reading. Lately my little girl has been worried that she her reading skills may not be were they should be and is scared to read new books because she is afraid she won’t be able to read them.I would like to know, Were your kids scared when it came to learning new books?
Thanks Lindy! Somehow I missed this comment until just now…I am going to talk to Beckie about maybe talking about this on tomorrow’s show. Will let you know! 🙂
