Kids Educational Videos (Learning through Books)
Little Tots Learning offers over one-hundred interactive educational videos. The traditional stories and nonfiction books in Little Tots Learning's videos will open doors to worlds of knowledge, adventure, and fun for children.The videos include: reading of traditional story books, reading comprehension, letters of the alphabet, sight words, types of text, knowledge of print, story elements, phonics, phonemic awareness, punctuation, numbers, shapes, colors, and home activities. These are all explained in child-friendly language in our library of books. Little Tots Learning's videos seeks to provide a diverse array of books that allows readers space to grow and enjoy new, more challenging and more enjoyable reading experiences over time. My goal is to foster in children a love of language and literature at the earliest age possible and to help create a generation of life-long readers.
Read-aloud sessions involve much more than saying words and turning pages. When you express your own excitement about the pictures story, setting, and characters, the child will be excited too. With my guidance, the child can learn to take meaning from the words and expand his or her story.
Looking for the details in the pictures talking about what might happen next and discussing how the story relates to the child's real-life experiences are important parts of read-aloud sessions.
One of the best ways to encourage emerging language and literacy skills is to read aloud with a child as often as possible. It is within this conversation, or dialogue, that students are able to advance their vocabulary acquisition, oral language, comprehension, and fluency, therefore, interactive storybook reading should be a necessity in your child's life.
Kids Book Reviews
Preschool children are able to choose books that interest them. They can retell a story, act out a story, and draw pictures about the story. Preschoolers hear the sounds that make words and recognize that printed letters form words.

Your child is five or six years old and enrolled in formal schooling. They can read simple books by themselves. They still love reading with you and sharing books with adults and other children.
Continue to use your local library and make library visits a priority
Borrow as many books as you can to create a wide array of reading material for your family
Look for books with humor, action, interesting words, interesting sounds, and lively characters. The strong narratives of simple folktales are also popular with children in kindergarten.
The main criteria for the books that I include on my website are that they are written for children between the ages of 3 to 6. As the owner and an educator, my reviews are written for parents and teachers. I include details of not only what age group the book might be suitable for, but also suggestions for curriculum content areas that it might link with.
The books I choose to include on my website are ones that I have personally enjoyed, and believe will encourage and motivate children to become lifelong learners.
