Reading with Children Series – A Parenting Handbook by Donna Castle Richardson , Ed.D.


Books can be a catalyst for building stronger relationships by talking, reading, and listening. This handbook shares initial strategies for parents who really want to make a difference in preparing their child for reading with understanding. This book evolved from a nationally recognized reading training program that was developed as a part of a US Department of Education tutor training grant. Dr. Richardson’s interest in literacy and children’s literature lead to the writing and publishing of the Teeny Tiny Tadpole and Little Lilly Ladybug written with folk literature characteristics. The stories are themed around changes as the body matures and grows. The interactive strategies in the handbook will make young children’s stories come alive for the child and parent.
