Growing a Reader from Birth by Diane McGuinness was fascinating, but I was disappointed that the majority of the book focused on baby . To my surprise, Diane McGuinness does not focus on reading.

Both books were geared toward parents and childcare givers, and the second is one every parent of a toddler should read. Growing a Reader from Birth.

Posted on April 9, 2019April 8, 2019 by Lindsey Krabbenhoft. Did you see the recent blog post on ALSC by the two ladies behind The Cardigan calling for more free professional development for children’s librarians? Hear, hear. As a children’s librarian this book gives me the knowledge to talk about this subject with my community. He tells you why and how to do it, and includes an updated read aloud booklist with new diverse titles.

Every parent should read this book! Reading is important and necessary for life; a child who can read well is most likely to do well in school and less likely to become delinquent! Begin preparing your child when he or she is only a few months old by developing a love for books -- not too many videos please! This author knows what she is talking about -- For older children I highly recommend her book, "Why our Children Can't Read."

I read this book while pregnant with my first child and am so happy that I did! I've continued to refer back to the book many times since.

McGuinness explains the importance of first building strong language and listening skills as a gateway to strong reading skills. She goes further to explain how critical it is that babies hear a wide vocabulary -- in a warm, positive, interactive context -- well before they can begin speaking.

A great reminder to keep up a constant, upbeat, responsive dialogue with your baby. Great tips for encouraging language development in toddlers and young children, too. Very well written and researched.

Pretty dry reading. Academic in nature, which is fine but not quite what I wanted.

I gained some good suggestions from this book (namely the recommendation for the Jolly Phonics system) but was a bit disappointed with the lack of practical suggestions I could use with my already-quite-verbal 2 year old. Perhaps readers who work with language-challenged children would find this book more beneficial.

The author seeks to help parents model and teach language skills to their children. However, many of the recommendations seemed to almost make fun of parents who struggle with communicating with their children. I thought a more supportive tone would help achieve the author's goals, especially since (as she goes to great lengths to explain) parents do not always do a good job of listening and speaking appropriately to their children. I also found the author relied overly on anecdotal situations. Often the text referred to past anecdotes without a reminder of the context; this left me feeling lost on more than one occasion.

But as I mentioned previously, this book did steer me toward Jolly Phonics, which has provided exactly the tools I sought to help me guide my toddler into the world of phonics, reading, and writing.

Diane McGuinness does not hold back in this book. If you are wanting some very interesting information on how a parent can affect their child's language abilities as well as their reading and writing abilities, then this is the book for you.

The author cites many references and studies that support her conclusions and recommendations.

I am currently in a Masters of Elem Education Program and taking a class in Reading Assessment. In my opinion, this book should be required reading.

There are many ways in which those in the education system in the USA have steered all of us in the wrong direction as to the best system for teaching reading. This book has made me want to conduct further research into the reasons for this. As a future classroom teacher (I've homeschooled my now nine-year triplets), I want to be an instrument of progress and this book has opened my eyes to some startling information.

I would not only recommend the book to all teachers, but to newly pregnant moms who are intersted in ways they can influence their child's literacy progress from the very start!

I would LOVE to have a long, face-to-face discussion with Diane about her theories, her research, and her recommendations.

As a parent of a 3-year-old and 1-year-old I felt this was a great book about how to communicate effectively with your children. While I was actually looking for more information on teaching my child to read, I gained a knowledge of how children learn to speak and how to have conversations with my son that will help him enhance his language skills, which are the basis of becoming a good reader. I thought the book was easy-to-read and a great resource for all parents. I didn't feel like the authors talked down to parents; in fact, many times she implied that parents were likely already using her suggestions without even realizing it. I found the book to be encouraging and informative.

I love this book! It's quite readable, with only the occasional foray into serious academia. It talks about how babies learn language and create the framework they need to learn to read.
