The Importance of Reading to Your Children!

I would like to share my passion about the importance of reading to your children.  As we know, reading is a fundamental part of both their learning journey and their childhood development.

I live in Toronto, Ontario, and I currently work with children from JK to Grade 8.  I also teach Spanish at the Toronto District School Board.  I have a doctoral degree in education from the University of Toronto and have recently published four children’s books for ages 3-10 years old. 

My daughters inspired me to write these books.  During their childhood development, they had difficulty pronouncing words and letters, in particular, the sounds “SH” and “F” – common issues for many young children.  Consequently, these books have been approved by a speech-language pathologist and can help children practice their articulation at all levels.  I have also translated three of these books into Spanish.

My books are also available on Amazon.com/author/marisoldandrea and Amazon.ca.  Please click on the YouTube link to read an excerpt from the book, “Figaro, the Flamboyant Frog.” And that’s not all – stay tuned for my upcoming children’s book, “About the Sloth, Sammy,” with a focus on the “S” sound.

Thank you for your attention and consideration.  Please let me know if you have any questions and, of course, keep on reading to your children!

Figaro, The Flamboyant Frog

This book is an educational yet fun story aimed at helping children uncover their hidden talents as well as encouraging them to practice speaking the ‘F’ sound. This story follows the life of a flamboyant frog named Figaro – who wore a Fedora… when he felt fancy he would eat flies… well, you get the idea – as he helps other to uncovers their hidden talents. This inspirational tale of Figaro teaches children the power of commitment in order to achieve their goals along with teaching them the truth that persistence pays off; as it did for Figaro! Figaro has many artistic talents and invites others to join his foundation to help them uncover their own hidden talents as well! It is an inspiring, fun book, with coloring pages that children can directly relate to because of their own difficulties with learning to speak. There’s no better time than right now to not only encourage your child to explore his / her own hidden talents, but learn to speak and have fun while doing it! This book is suitable for all children ages 5 and up.
