***For newcomers & visitors: Definition of "Book Talk" from Wikipedia: "A booktalk in the broadest terms is what is spoken with the intent to convince someone to read a book. The booktalker gives the audience a glimpse of the setting, the characters, and/or the major conflict without providing the resolution or denouement. Booktalks make listeners care enough about the content of the book to want to read it. A long booktalk is usually about five to seven minutes long and a short booktalk is generally thirty seconds to two minutes long.
My copy of Pete The Cat came in on Friday and I took it home to Leah, my 3 year old. I KNEW this would be a book that she would love! I was right. She hasn't put it down since. She is even planning a Pete the Cat Halloween costume. She is such a reader! She memorize entire books- and then months later can retell it- word for word. She reads with expression- if you didn't know, you would think she was really "reading" the words. I wonder if I have an early reader on my hands? This just shows what happens to kids when they are surrounded by books, read to and see people read. This is Leah reading Pete the Cat last night. What books do your kids love? Have you found that your 2nd child readers sooner than your first?
