"The aim of each unique book is to help your child develop a love of reading. It does this by presenting photographs which reflect your child's world and relating them to simple words. Research shows that if your child loves books they will learn to read much faster and you will be encouraging a lifelong love of reading.
The key words in each book are known as high frequency words which are some of the first words your child will be taught to recognise when they start school. As they start to recognise these key words on sight (also know as the 'look and say' method of learning) their confidence builds.
Over the years the way of teaching children to learn to read has changed, although the current favoured method in British primaries is through phonics there is still a lot of emphasis on comprehension, high frequency words (often referred to as tricky words) and reading for pleasure.
I got the idea for using photos to create personalised reading books to help my middle child, who has special needs, learn to read. I made a book using photos of our family and it was a real hit, so I made some more using different words. Then I noticed that my youngest child, who was only two at the time, was always picking up the homemade books and was reading them to anyone who would listen. Friends starting asking me to make books for their children... and so love2read was born.
In fact I knew why the books were so successful because I'm a qualified teacher with over fifteen years experience working in primary schools as a classroom teacher. I've used this knowledge to design our range of books so now you can help your children without having to resort to glue and scissors like I did!"For your chance to win your own Christmas themed love2read book, simply fill out the Rafflecopter form below (the competition ends on 14 December 12am):
