Children’s Books

5 Apr

I think that listening to and reading children’s books are a great way to practice listening and reading.  As you know, reading involves not only comprehension but also decoding and fluency.  Reading children’s books is also a great way to acquire new vocabulary.  If you want a real challenge, try reading a book to children because they will be honest and tell you when you mispronounce anything.

Here is a great website to a very popular Canadian children’s author, Robert Munsch.  On the website, you can listen to many of his books.  You can also download the audio file.

      Hi Andrey,

      Thanks for the link to the video. As I mentioned before, “Love you Forever” is one of my favourite stories. Robert Munsch is a very interesting Canadian author. He really knows how to take the essence of childhood and turn it into an entertaining piece of work.
