When young children are immersed in joyful and engaging shared reading experiences throughout the day, something wonderful happens. They learn to love books, enjoy reading, and see themselves as readers. They also gain basic reading skills and knowledge, which prepares them for successful reading instruction. Eric Litwin and Gina Pepin provide practical tools and strategies to transform your classroom into a "reading playground" - a space in which children read along to, sing to, dance to, and celebrate words and text. A space in which they experience the power of joyful reading.
