This is our fourth and final post in our reading series! Today we are highlighting ideas and resources for early readers.


Teaching a young child how to read can be a wonderful experience. I take great joy in seeing my children’s eyes light up when they are able to read their first words, form sentences and read a book all by themselves. It can also be stressful if you have a child that struggles or is apprehensive to read.

I pray these ideas and resources will bless you and give you encouragement as you take on the great task of helping your early readers!
