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!

Sharing

If you are the parent of a young child, then you know the importance – and possibly the struggle – of encouraging them to share. Whether it be with a sibling, the other children at school or out on the playground, sharing goes a long way and is a very important virtue that becomes a vital skill as one develops. Sharing is a skill learned over time, and one that can sometimes be forgotten if not properly reinforced. Learning to share will not only help your child to socialize, but teaches them empathy and the power of helping others. The book ‘Sharing’ focuses on the importance of sharing between siblings but more importantly how to do it while having fun! It is perfect for all children ages 3 and up, and also helps them to practice the difficult to pronounce ‘SH’ sound as in… sharing!
