The first episode begins with an introduction from Mr. Rogers which was a great blast from the past for me and I think it will be for many parents. I was doing a little research on him and found that his grandfather's last name was McFeely. Do you remember Mr. McFeely on the show? It is all coming back to me now.
But, back to the task at hand, "Launching Young Readers". This is a wonderful resource, divided into half hour programs about how children learn to read and what parents and educators can do to help children learn to and love to read.
Topics cover everything from reading aloud to how the brain learns to read. It is fascinating.
Just go to the Reading Rockets website to watch previously aired programs online.
