JenniferBCanadaAge: 35-44Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5November 23, 2008JenniferBCanadaAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleIn her capacity as a homeschooling mother, Mama frog soothes Splish each time he expresses his fears that he will never, ever learn to read. And then Mama said, It takes time to learn to read, Splish forms the repeating element of encouragement for all young children impatient for the inevitable breakthrough necessary before fluent reading skills emerge. Mama frog continues to read to Splish daily and to encourage his reading efforts until the developmental leap is made and Splish realizes that his Mama was right all along: it does take time to learn to read.Splishs simple story entered into our familys life the day after I heard my own five-year-old daughter voicing her frustrations with her lack of reading skills. I cant read, and Im never going to be able to! her sentiments echoed Splishs precisely. Though I reassured her that night that yes, she would read, but it took time and practice, I heard doubt in her voice. Just learning to blend three letter words, she had her eyes set on lengthy picture books and the meaty, read-aloud chapter books we share together as a family. Children raised in a reading home find this waiting period particularly difficult.Sharing the story of Splishs frustrations and eventual triumph seemed to settle her fears and anxiety. Never drawing conclusions between her situation and the little frogs we simply read through the story several times together. She noted similarities between the frog family and ours, Oh Mommy, those frogs are Christians. Oh! They homeschool too! Having the reassurances of her father and myself echoed by an independent third party in this case a storybook finally convinced her that we were telling the truth. Despite the worst of her fears, she would learn to read with time.
