The population of children who I work with fall into one of three categories:
1) Never seen a book before
2) Does not show any interest in books
3) Finds books too hard to read or understand
"Concepts" is a book that I use to introduce everyday concepts to my clients, from 2 years up to 7 years of age. The simple, repetitive structure of each page makes it easy for them to know what the answer is, and provides structured routine to those who are nervous about reading books. The faded answer key allows for errorless learning and an enjoyable reading experience.
The commonly used concepts that are depicted on each page are frequently used when we give instructions or descriptions to our children. Learning to recognise these concepts allows our children to have a better understanding of the world around them.
The interactive nature of this book allows even non-verbal children to participate in a literacy activity. It gives a non-verbal option to the shy children who lack confidence or motivation to read.
