However, I have to say, those books seem to have made the difference around here for one struggling reader.
"I did it Mommy! I read the whole thing"
Learning the skill has been a challenge because she really could care less. There are much more important things to do! Ten Apples Up on Top was the first book (and only, so far) that she has read on her own for pleasure. She also asks us to read from a collection of Dr. Suess books that we get at the library quite often.
So, thank you Dr. Suess.
