A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch
Introducing books early to young children is an enormous help in starting to learn how to read. Reading aloud while looking at a book makes the connection between the sounds of language and the written marks on the page, which is the start of the learning to read process. Also, babies and toddlers come to realise that there is a world inside the book to which they can return, and experience the same pleasure over and over again. And of course it can start a habit which will last a lifetime!
Sharing and talking about books with babies and toddlers is an important step in their journey to becoming life-long readers. There is no better place to start on this journey than with Campbell Books.
Campbell is a specialist maker of books for babies and toddlers that parents, grandparents and friends can buy with confidence, knowing that children will love and want to read them again and again.
We believe that good books always start with the child. Our books have a child-centred sense of fun and are softly educational – they connect to a child’s world and the bustle and warmth of family life.
Innovative and contemporary, Campbell publishes an array of hard-wearing formats that are designed to be as much at home in the toy-box as they are on the bookshelf.
By 6 months your baby’s co-ordination is developing and he is really starting to explore the world. These books focus on touching and feeling and looking at things firmly connected with daily life. Soon your baby will be ready to really join in with the reading experience, turning the pages, lifting the flaps, guessing and more.
Playtime Stories and Bedtime Stories illustrated by Luana Rinaldo. There’s so much to do and see, finger trails to follow the story across the page and there are lots of flaps to lift. Each book contains five short stories with gently rhyming texts. In smaller print are comments, scraps of nursery rhymes, questions and more. Remember you don’t need to do everything with a book, start with just the stories and soon your child will be asking you questions about it.
• You can share a book anywhere and at any time of the day
• Be comfortable, curl up on a sofa, in a chair, on a large cushion, or maybe in the garden
• Sometimes five minutes is enough, never push it if your baby is not in the mood
• Point to the pictures to show how they connect with the words
• Let your child help to turn the page as soon as they try
• Go back and forth between the pages if this is what baby wants
