In his new book “A Children's Picture-Word and Simple Sentence Book: English Version Primary Grades & ESOL Students”(published by Trafford Publishing), seasoned educator Dr. Harry Irving, Ed. D., uses pictures, simple text and concise storytelling to enhance the reading and language art skills of young readers.
“A Children's Picture-Word and Simple Sentence Book” is organized in easy-to-reference sections and includes some 180 pictures that can be used in lessons focusing on comprehension and reflex recognition.
While “A Children's Picture-Word and Simple Sentence Book” is useful for all caregivers of children, the book is especially formatted for the in-class teacher.
“The purpose of the book is to enable teachers to incorporate, supplement, and augment meaningful and enjoyable learning activities in reading and language art programs,” explains Irving.
Long an advocate for education, Irving also provides instructors with several supporting educational materials for his book, including a coloring book, crossword puzzles, and quiz books (all additional materials sold separately). In addition, Irving’s “A Children's Picture-Word and Simple Sentence Book” comes in French And Spanish versions.
