Proverbs 22:6 – Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old, he will not depart from it.
This is the second post in a three-part series discussing authors, books, and stories.
Part 2: Books
Recommended Book: Bookspeak!: Poems About Books by Laura Purdie Salas
Different Books For Different Ages ~ discuss these different types/styles of books and how they are meant to transition a reader over time as they develop reading skills. Present an example of each type/style so they can see the difference between each. At the K-2 grade level, they will likely have familiarity with the first three types, but including chapter books to the lesson will help them understand the next phase of reading book.
Parts of a Book ~ discuss different parts of a book and their function then ask the child to answer these questions using a book of their choice to assess their knowledge after the lesson.
Fiction vs. Non-Fiction ~ compare and contrast. Define each and provide examples of both. You can use this Fiction and Non-Fiction worksheet during the lesson.
Hardcover vs. Paperback ~ discuss similarities and the difference between both:
Book Reviews ~ discuss what a book review is and why it is helpful to others.
