Mem Fox is the author of many beloved picture books including Koala Lou, Time for Bed and Wombat Divine. She is also a former professor of literacy education who has written books for adults as well. Reading Magic is a must for all parents or for anyone who wants to know more about how children learn to read. As a literacy expert (and a mother), Fox looks at how important reading aloud to your children is in helping them learn to read. The direction of her professional career changed after she discovered that her own daughter had learned to read on her own because she had been read aloud to regularly and often. As a mother, she had read to her daughter simply because she wanted to spend time with her but she then became fascinated as a educator when she witnessed the results. This inspiring and practical book demonstrates when and where to read aloud and gives easy-to-follow examples of how to read aloud to get the most out of the experience.
