Books to read




Two books to recommend for anyone interested in RDI or child development.

I Love You Rituals is an easy to read, practical book of great finger plays and rhymes for the young child. Campbell has loved these, especially this one:


Clapping, clapping, one two three,
Play a clapping game with me.
Whoops, your hands have gone away.
I'll find those hands so we can play!

Awakening Children's Minds is much more technical and a little heavy, but it gives great explanations of things such as regulation, self-regulation, scaffolding, indirect prompting, the guide-apprentice relationship, and other basics of RDI.

Both books were lent to me by our consultant - thank you!
