Growing Life Long Readers: Learning Library Giveaway!

learning libraryNot all kids are born with the love for reading.  Though I nurtured my kids in the world of reading and I boast of a well stocked library of wonderful kids books,  one of my kids sadly doesn't have the aching desire to read.   Preferring to play than read, reading to him is a chore than pleasure.

So when he comes home from school with writing compositions, in dire need of richer words and more fluent transitions,  I go on my tirade that if he only loved to read ...

Learning Library, a center that offers reading comprehension programs that has very good reviews from Filipino parents, will surely be of help to him.

I recently had brunch with Learning Library's founder who happens to be my climbing buddy from way back, Vanny Bicomong, and I am enamored with her passion for reading.  She said she is blessed to be surrounded with teachers who share the same passion with her.  And that to me is already half of the reason why Learning Library works.

The rest lies on the library's 4,000 strong collection of well-loved children's books and the reading program they have developed.  Their literature-based comprehension program engages the kids in storytelling coupled with enrichment activities (arts and crafts etc.) and decoding strategies to help them understand and appreciate the book more.

They also have a "Wika'y Galing" Filipino Comprehension and Communication Skills program.  This is a handy tool for our English, barely no Filipino speaking (shame, shame) kids. Their approach is of course anchored on a Filipino book and enforced by group activities that encourage communication using the Filipino language.  It employs multi-sensorial method to allow the children to experience the words in the story.  For instance, the kids can make Halo-halo and experience "Malamig, matamis, makulay etc."

I am eager for my son to try the Learning Library and hopefully this will seal his fate to become a life long reader.
