First leaps in reading – FOR CREATING PASSIONATE YOUNG READERS

A new series intended to bring children closer to reading because the pleasure of reading is experienced, even independently, with the utmost spontaneity, based on the student’s readiness, curiosity and rhythm.

Combining the hook letters, the child will discover that he/she can read his/her first words with great ease, and then apply the same mechanism to normal letters.


In each volume you can find:


  • The alphabet strip, which introduces each hook letter to encourage immediate memorization. It is incorporated into the book as an overall view at the start of the book, and can be consulted during reading as needed.

  • The stories and characters from Pitti’s world, which are well-loved by children and who make new friends while they explore their world.

  • The illustrations, which assist the child in contextualizing the story by creating a tie between the images and reality.

THE AUTHOR

Camillo Bortolato is a pedagogist and teacher with over 40 years experience in primary schools. In addition to teaching, he has for many years been intensely involved in research on methodologies and teaching tools for mathematics. He is particularly interested in designing tools which make teaching easier and school less heavy going for teachers, pupils and parents. He believes that we will all learn to “understand at a glance” when school learning becomes like learning about life, which is all about love, passion and hard work. With Erickson he has made several tools and published a number of books on how to apply the analogical method, which plays on the innate intuition of children in order to turn the learning process into a spontaneous one.
