Winter Holidays: A Time for (Word) Families

If your family has a beginning reader, here's an idea for a great way to spend some time together during the cold weather.  Snuggle up with a word family book!  Word families help kids learn about sounding out and rhyming as they learn to identify predictable sounds in words that sound similar.  As kids learn these "chunks," they discover that they can figure out other words that have the same vowel sound and sequence of letters.  

The series of books in this picture are in the Sounds section of the library's Easy Reader collection.  Ask us at the children's desk to show you where they are!  Or click here to find them in our catalog.
