Award-Winning Authors Create Free Wintertime Activities to Help Young Children Learn to Read and Practice Spelling

Did you know that you can help young children learn to read while building snowmen with them? It's true, and it's easy to do.

Gary Kosman and Grace May Chiu, the award winning authors of "Bonding While Learning," are providing parents with free, snow-play activities to help young children learn to read and write while strengthening the parent-child relationship. The imaginative activities help younger children learn their letters by building snowmen and help older children practice spelling by "painting the snow" with materials families already have at home. Parents and grandparents can download the free literacy activities from the "Bonding While Learning" website.

Given the extraordinarily positive response that Kosman and Chiu's newest book, "Bonding While Learning," has received from parents, grandparents, preschools, elementary schools and home schools worldwide in the first months since its release, the authors decided to celebrate that success by creating these wintertime activities that families living in snowy areas can use to make learning time quality family time as well.

"Parents and grandparents love 'Bonding While Learning' activities because the activities have a major focus on relationship building, are written as easy-to-follow recipes, are fun to do, and take little time to prepare," said Kosman. "'Bonding While Learning' activities give young children an opportunity to learn while participating in meaningful, memorable, family moments."

Earlier this year, iParenting Media Awards, one of the most prestigious award programs for parenting products, honored "Bonding While Learning" by naming it an "Excellent Product of 2007." Aside from receiving positive reviews from the parenting and education communities, in his newest book, "Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World," former President Bill Clinton recognizes Kosman's efforts of working to ensure that every child develops the literacy skills needed for academic and lifelong success.
