Is It Time to Say Goodbye?


Is it time to say goodbye?

I have asked myself that question for the last year and a half. Why? Because I have notice the number of viewers/followers has decreased. The number of people taking part in the giveaways has dropped that I don’t think it’s fair to the authors/publishers to find out only a few comments about their books.

So I have decided to get rid of the giveaway program. I know that a few dedicated followers leave their comments on books whether there’s a giveaway or not and I will like to say a big thank you and that I’m very grateful.

Since I’m still behind in reviewing a few books, the giveaway program will last until the end of July 2016. It will be up to the authors/publishers if they want their books to be given away. Only then will I do a giveaway.

For the love that I have for books, I will still keep the blog running to only spotlight the author/book. If any author/publisher still interested please click on the link for more information. https://mymcbooks.wordpress.com/request-book-spotlight/

I would like to say a big thank you to all my followers for their support and lovely comments about their love for books. Thank you for being a part of this blog. I will, once in a while surprise you with a free book. So watch out for my email.

Even without the free giveaway, please help support the authors by leaving a comment about their book when posted.

Thank you

Ella

2014 in review


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 35,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 13 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

National Hispanic Heritage Month 2013


hispanic-heritage

 

San Miguel de Gualdape was the first European settlement in North America. It was founded in Georgia in 1526, 81 years before Jamestown. St. Augustine, Florida was founded in 1565 and is the oldest city in the United States. Hispanic Americans have been making contributions to life in the U.S. ever since.

National Hispanic Heritage Month is the period from September 15 to October 15 in the United States, when people recognize the contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and celebrate the group’s heritage and culture.

Hispanic Heritage Week was approved by President Lyndon Johnson and the length of it was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period (September 15 – October 15). It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988 on the approval of Public Law to read more click on the link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Hispanic_Heritage_Month

Improve Reading Comprehension! Win a Book.


Reading

Improve Reading Comprehension

Help your child improve reading comprehension: a crucial reading skill, especially as he gets older & needs to glean information from books.

Here are six tips to improve reading comprehension in your early reader:
1.Have him read aloud. This forces him to go slower, which gives him more time to process what he reads, which improves reading comprehension. Plus, he’s not only seeing the words, he’s hearing them, too. You can also take turns reading aloud.
2.Provide the right kinds of books. Make sure your child gets lots of practice reading books that aren’t too hard. She should recognize at least 90 percent of the words without any help. Stopping any more often than that to figure out a word makes it tough for her to focus on the overall meaning of the story.
3.Reread to build fluency. To gain meaning from text and encourage reading comprehension, your child needs to read quickly and smoothly – a skill known as fluency. By the beginning of 3rd grade, for example, your child should be able to read 90 words a minute. Rereading familiar, simple books gives your child practice at decoding words quickly, so she’ll become more fluent in her reading comprehension.

Reluctant Readers Allowed

Learn 5 ways to gently build your child’s reading confidence. By Allison McDonald

When children are learning to read independently, some will attempt it happily, accepting correction with ease and without fear of making mistakes. Some, though, will not. Many children will shy away from reading out loud because of a lack of confidence. This lack of confidence is not an indicator of their ability. Many children who are reluctant to read out loud are great readers; however, they have a desire to be perfect and don’t want to mess up.

It can be heartbreaking for parents to watch their children struggle with reading confidence, but the more you push them to read to you, the more they clam up and refuse. Even though my son was an early reader, he was not always eager to read out loud around my husband or me. He is a born perfectionist, and while so many things come naturally, his desire to do them perfectly from the start can hamper his efforts. Here are five things we did to encourage my son to read aloud, and I would suggest them to any parent facing a similar situation at home.

1. Don’t push your child. When reading with your child, don’t force him to read. Instead make sure that you are next to each other and he is following along with you as you read. Trace your finger along the text as you read.

2. Give him privacy. Give him time alone to read without an audience. Respect his privacy to read alone.

3. Read to a different audience. Suggest that he read to a puppy, younger sibling, or stuffed animal. None of these judge or know if a word was read correctly or not. This helps your child build his confidence. My son built so much confidence by reading to his baby sister. Now even though his confidence is no longer an issue, he still reads to her often. Everyone wins!

International Book Giving Day 2013 – February 14th


international-book-giving-day-poster-by-priya-kuriyan

International Book Giving Day is a volunteer initiative aimed at increasing children’s access to and enthusiasm for books. International Book Giving Day’s focus is on encouraging people worldwide to give a book to a child on February 14th.

We invite individuals to 1) give a book to a friend or family member, 2) leave a book in a waiting room for children to read, or 3) donate a gently used book to a local library, hospital or shelter or to an organization that distributes used books to children in need internationally. In addition, we encourage people to support the work of nonprofit organizations (i.e. charities) that work year round to give books to children.
