"THERE IS MORE TREASURE IN BOOKS THAN IN ALL THE
PIRATE LOOT ON TREASURE ISLAND."
Everyone who loves to read experiences a story like a movie in their mind. They learn to bring the full force of their senses, emotions and imagination to bring a book to life! Judie Ryan's BOOKS-IN-ACTION strengthens these skills so that kids build their abilities to "see" stories and themselves in those stories as they hear and read them. When they can do that, they will want and love to read! BOOKS-IN-ACTION weaves Ryan's creative methods into standard reading practices bringing joy into all aspects of learning to read. They work equally well in fiction and non-fiction and demonstrate the importance of encouraging imaginative skills in young children. The program also develops children's eyes properly for reading, something often missed in basic teaching methods.
