No matter how old you are, there’s nothing quite like a skillfully narrated, beautifully illustrated children’s book. I’m sure my fellow grown-ups will remember the magic of books like Green Eggs and Ham and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs — and want to share that same magic with their own kids (or students or neighbors or nieces and nephews)….
It’s important to revise and edit your work, but it can be a difficult process for kids and even adults to do properly. We’ll go over 7 steps to help you show kids how to self-edit their writing so they can eventually do it on their own.

Reading is not a set of remote skills that children learn when they go to school. Learning is the process which starts after birth. During childbirth, a baby’s cerebrum is as yet creating and the encounters that we give decide how the mind is produced. Literacy activities are more interesting for baby. The great foundation of literacy or fun literacy activities for babies are talking, singing, playing sound and word games, reading, writing and drawing. Literacy helps your baby to learn about the value of books and stories and helps to learn differences between ‘real’ and ‘make-believe’. But literacy skills do not just develop overnight. If we start to practice literacy from the early and build on a child’s experience as they grow, they will not only be able to read and write, but also love to read and write.
