Overview

Best-selling children's author Betty Miles reveals the secrets behind one of life's most important and enjoyable skills in the first-ever "how to" book for children who are just getting ready to read—and for the parents, relatives, teachers, and friends who want to help them.

Preschool to Grade Two. Bestselling children's author Betty Miles reveals the secrets behind reading, one of life's most important and enjoyable skills, in a "how to" book for children who are just getting ready to learn how. Armed with confidence and aided by exuberant, colorful illustrations, children will delight in discovering that they are actually reading. The opening two sections are about the process. The last section gives 19 selections to read such as poems, knock-knock jokes, an alphabet of names, and a double-page spread of a school scene with labels, dialogue balloons, and a chalkboard message.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Sylvie Wickstrom's pictures are delightful. In a style somewhat reminiscent of Janet and Allan Ahlberg's work, she populates the pages with appealing multi-ethnic children and clearly rendered animals and objects that illustrate verbal concepts.

Meet the Author

*  Betty Miles is a graduate of Antioch College.  She is a former Associate Editor of the Bank Street Readers, and has taught both kindergarten and graduate students, led workshops with parents, teachers, and librarians, and talked about books and reading with children and their parents around the country.

* Betty hated her first day of elementary school because she was the only kid who knew how to read!  Since then, Betty has turned her love of reading into a how-to book for beginning readers called "Hey! I'm Reading" .

*  She would like to be many things, if she weren't an author:  a musician, architect, city planner and even a stand-up comedian!

* Betty's books are a mix of things that have really happened to her and things she's completely made up.  But after she's worked on a book for a long time, a funny thing happens:  everything in it becomes real to her, and even her invented characters start to seem like real friends!
