In this spirit, we’ve expanded some of our tips to encourage parents to explore different approaches to reading. This month, we’re discussing Strategies for Sounding out Words.

One of the most important parts of the Holidays is spending quality time with your family. Many families celebrate with special traditions they look forward to all year long, whether it be decorating the house, baking cookies together, or singing favorite holiday-themed songs. At Elephant Books, though, we always say that any special moment is best celebrated with a book!

The holiday season is all about giving. From home-baked goods to something that’s long been on someone’s wishlist, a thoughtful gift shows a loved one just how much you care. But picking out the perfect gift isn’t something special for just adults to do–kids love giving gifts too! Get your children and their friends in the gift-giving spirit by encouraging them to think of caring gifts to give to one another. They will have so much fun brainstorming what their siblings or friends might appreciate and making that vision come to life!
