Flipbooks encourage early reading and writing

See also

Early reading and writing skills begin when a young child is first able to hold a crayon for scribbling and when they are first able to listen to a favorite story being read to them. Drawing and printing follow as the child begins to understand that writing has a purpose and they gain the skill of print recognition. Creating their own reading and writing projects enhance interest in reading and writing. Making their own books encourages children to practice reading and writing skills. Creating a book with their own words and pictures encourages vocabulary development as children describe their pictures as a reading activity.

Children's World in Sarasota is hosting a Flipbook Fun event for children on January 25 from 10:00 a.m. until 4: p.m. to come in and create their own flipbook. A flipbook is a little book that acts like a movie as you turn the pages. Drawing is a prerequisite for writing, and drawing pictures for a flipbook is a great activity to encourage writing. Flipbooks give the illusion of movement in the pictures on the pages as you turn the pages.

All materials will be provided for your child to use in creating their own flipbook. The event is free.

Children's World is located at 4525 Bee Ridge in Sarasota. Parents may call 941-956-6999, or log on at for information.

Bring your child in for a fun activity activity that will encourage early reading and writing skills.
