It took Would You Like A Giant Ginger Garbula? to make me realize just how much we ask of children when we start teaching them to read and, most of all, learn to enjoy it. Few of the twenty-six letters comprising the English language stay sounding the same, but one thing is for sure, get them Virginia K. White’s book and G will be instantly easy. Ms. White is a retired English teacher and what more could you want of an author of books to encourage your children to read? A sense of fun and the knowledge that youngsters will want to read normal words – grinning, goblet, geranium, gusto, garlic, genteel, griddle – if they tell them more about a Giant Ginger Garbula. Would you like to have one come to visit?
English is packed with letters that have too many rules, but “G” really takes the biscuit – sorry, the Garibaldi. “G” is hard g as in goat – and there are three in giggle; g is soft like in gesture – yes, I know that ought to look like j, but it doesn’t. Got that? Great – oops, combine it with r and it sounds gr like in growl, and why did I forget to say sometimes it makes no sound at all? You can’t hear it in gnat. My goodness, I’ve generated some grueling goals! By far the best plan is to get Would You Like A Giant Ginger Garbula? (Fun Reading Books for Ages 3-7) by Virginia K. White, gloriously illustrated by Gasper Sabater. I guarantee your children will have fun and – lean closer so I can whisper – they won’t notice they’re learning!
