My youngest daughter and I are on a mission to add more nonfiction into our reading repertoire. This is why we were so happy to see the selection of Ready-to-Read books that were sent to us from Simon & Schuster. In addition to great reading, one of the books really caught our interest and we decided to create the project that was in the back.
True Colors! The Story of Crayola is part of the “History of Fun Stuff” series and shares great information about color through the ages. While reading together, we were so happy to see that there was a fun project to do together.
With the help of mom, my daughter created abstract art using three Crayola crayons.
With hair dryer in my hand and Crayola crayons in hers, we followed the directions that were at the end of the book to create abstract art of our own. Since you are melting crayons, it is important that an adult is a part of this art project. While the hair dryer is blowing, you should move the crayons around to create your abstract masterpiece.
Voila! My artist was extremely happy with the idea learned from the Ready-to-Read book.
Ready-to-Read has it all, with leveled books for every young reader! Exciting nonfiction, beloved characters, and fan favorites make Ready-to-Read books the perfect choice for reluctant young readers.
My daughter loved Looking Up! The Science of Stargazing. After the eclipse last year, she was interested in the sky so we purchased a telescope for her. This book aligns perfectly with her new interest and shares facts about the eclipse.
As a mom, I was happy to see the variety of genre and characters available. As a teacher, I was glad to read that the titles were vetted by educational experts and each level was designed to help children confidently grasp new reading concepts.
Sight words, shorter lengths, word families, and rhyming are used to support the reader while enjoying a story or learning new information.
The common core looks to have readers develop a love of reading. This is why I am so glad to see that Ready-to-Read brings the focus back to fun while still offering parents and educators well crafted, imaginative stories and engaging nonfiction.
Ready-to-Read has something for everyone, and even reluctant readers will enjoy the easy format and fun stories.
