Color is a dynamic stimulation and plays a very important role in learning, as research has shown that 50-60 percent of our brain is used for seeing.
Chook the Chuck Has Amazing Luck is entertaining and is perfect for preschoolers at bedtime as well as a self-read book for older children. It is also a great rhyming book for toddlers and a perfect early reader book. Rhyming teaches children who are learning to read about the patterns and structures in both spoken and written words. Rhyming and songs expose children to the rhythm of language, which helps them read with some animation in their voice instead of just a monotone voice. Rhyming also helps children learn about word families such as hug and shrug, or glee and free and so on. For instance, if your child is learning to spell, if they can spell truck, they can spell Chuck and if they can spell goat they can spell coat.
Have you ever seen kids sitting and happily listening to someone reading in a monotone voice? I haven’t. If you want to hold a child’s attention, read with inflection and animation, and they will sit glued to your voice. Rhyming and rhythm are very important skills that help a young reader learn to use inflection an animation when reading aloud. Rhyming also prepares kids to make predictions while learning words and gives them crucial interpreting skills.
