5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Book, 14 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Slinky Malinki (Hairy Maclary and Friends) (Board book)
My son had a reading age of nearly eight when he started school. People asked me how I "taught him to read". Here's the secret. No young child is taught to read. If they love the sounds and images they hear, then they learn to decode what they see. This is one of half a dozen books I read to Peter from the day he was born. He never got bored with it, and neither did I, because it's a brilliant book.It has everything necessary for a good children's read - clever vocabulary, humour, quirky illustrations which aren't vulgar or lazy cartoons, a wicked protagonist, a moral and - best of all- it rhymes. Don't get me started about phonics - reading should be a joy which your child discovers alongside you, not the end result of parrotty lessons from a teacher with a microchip where her imagination should be. Buy this book and have fun!
