BOOK REVIEW: How Lil’ Eddie Learns to Read by Rima H. Corral

My daughter, who is 5, has been reading books for over 6 months now. She has been reading familiar words for a few years. Even with this under her belt, she still thoroughly enjoyed reading How Lil’ Eddie Learns to Read by Rima H. Corral.

The book is about a little boy, Eddie, who learns how to read with the help and support of his family and neighbourhood friends. His parents help him learn how to read by using familiar words around him and through encouragement.

This book has a fabulous tips for parents who are unsure how to support their child in learning the basics of reading when they are preschool age. If I had had enough money, I would have bought each and every parent of my Kindergarten students a copy of this book to give them in June before their child started JK.

The one negative thing I found about this book was that the parent tips, although very useful and relevant, were somewhat distracting as they were posted throughout the story (my daughter pointed to them and wanted me to read them out loud) which took away from the natural flow of the story itself.

Ok, one more comment (constructive criticism) is that for a book that is meant to encourage and help little ones to learn how to read, the title shouldn’t contain “Lil'” instead of “Little”. That is confusing for young children to read.

Nonetheless, my daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book together.
