Reading Magic by Mem Fox (Paperback)
The must-have guide to reading with children, now in a new and revised edition
Best-selling children's author and internationally respected literacy expert Mem Fox reveals the incredible emotional and intellectual impact reading aloud to children has on their ability to learn to read. With passion and humor, Fox speaks of when, where, and why to read aloud and demonstrates how to read aloud to best effect and get the most out of a read-aloud session. She discusses the three secrets of reading, offers guidance on defining and choosing good books, and—for this new edition—includes two new chapters on boy readers and phonics, a foreword, and a list of "Twenty Books That Children Love." Filled with practical advice, activities, and inspiring true read-aloud miracles, this book is a turn-to classic for educators and parents.

Reading Level: For Parents & Teachers
"Mem Fox has "done it" again!!! The wave upon wave of children with whom I have "done" first grade have always been in love with her books. Now I cannot praise enough this book for adults who would influence children. I've given my copy to the new interim principal at the school where I serve as a coach to a first-time first grade teacher. She is reading it, as well. It is significant that she dedicated her book to Jim Trelease...she and he are literally "on the same page(s)". I say a rousing THANK YOU to Mem Fox for putting this kind of book out there at an affordable price so that parents can "change their children's lives forever".
My son-in-law still thanks me for introducing him to Trelease when our grandsons were quite young...and their lives have been changed forever...that entire family is composed of dedicated readers."
"This book should be required reading for all parents of children from birth to six! As a teacher and parent I have used the tips in this book to make reading fun and part of the every day routine. This is a quick read, full of tips you can use immediately."
