Quick and Creative Tips for Chaldean Parents Wishing to Raise Readers
By Latifa Seeba :: Thursday, June 12, 2008 :: 78973 Views :: Living & Lifestyle, Career & Education

A Chaldean home filled with reading material is a good way to help our kids become enthusiastic (and proficient) readers. English is not the primary language spoken in most Chaldean households.  This challenge makes it a bit more difficult for Chaldean children to do well in reading and language arts.  To give your Chaldean child an additional boost you might consider these wonderful suggestions. 

First ask your kids about their interests. If they're too young to have a preference, visit your local library and ask a librarian to offer suggestions about age-appropriate books.

Here are some other wonderful tips shared by Chaldean parents Basima Kizzy, Joan Bazzi, Freddy Razooky, and Sabri Zora:
