Books supporting different reading strategies
Have you ever closed your eyes and tried unsuccessfully to understand what someone is saying to you? I have that problem. I’m a visual learner and it helps me to see who is talking to me. Others close their eyes, absorb what they hear and love all they are learning. Another group likes to be moving around when they learn. They need to ‘feel’ the new information. They are kinetic learners. We all have our way of learning and learning to read.

Becoming a parent is a unique responsibility. Once you have a child, you are their parent forever, and it is your duty to raise them well enough so that they may have a successful future and be able to contribute to society in some way. Often, new parents are eager to take on the task, with many vowing to be the best mom or dad that their kids could ever hope for. But they soon discover that they have an important question: How exactly should they raise their child?

One way to do this is through books. They are a great way to ‘meet’ new people who are different from the reader.
