The reading nook

My good friend Czari decided to open a reading clinic for kids this summer. So if you have a child who has nothing much to do while school's out, why not enroll him or her to The Reading Nook. Summer is perfect for kids to enjoy reading -- there's no pressure from teachers, they can take all the time they want, and they can choose too read what they like. If I had kids, I'd definitely enroll them here.

All about Czari's The Reading Nook in the press release below.

“The more that you read,
The more things you will know.
The more that you learn,
The more places you'll go.”

nook. (n k) n.

1. A small corner, alcove, or recess, especially one in a large room.

2. A hidden or secluded spot.

Reading is a fundamental part of any child’s education; reading aloud to your toddler is more than just a fun diversion. It builds the skills that lead directly to her ability to read on her own. It’s not hard to make reading a favorite part of your child’s life. Children at a young age are very interested in sounds and words. Thus, it is important that children are exposed as often as possible to the written and the spoken word to help nurture in them an early love for reading.

This is the main philosophy behind The Reading Nook, a mini-library for children ages 1 to 8 years old. The Reading Nook provides a quiet and comfortable reading area where beginners in reading can learn how to turn pages, understand the correct orientation of a book and gain a knowledge of letter sounds; in-between readers differentiate pictures from words, know rhymes and songs and show independent interest in books; advanced readers make up stories, role play and build higher level language skills.


In order to gain access to The Reading Nook one must pay a one-time Membership Fee. It comes with 10 Reading Hour Sessions and access to hundreds of books in a comfortable reading environment. The unique feature of The Reading Nook is the presence of a qualified Reading Teacher who will guide you and your child in the pre-reading, reading and post-reading phases. Your child’s reading session becomes more productive and enjoyable!

Classes Offered

Starting Summer 2009, The Reading Nook offers its members fun and exciting classes for toddlers, pre-schoolers and primary school age kids!

Children will hardly notice that they are learning pre-literacy and literacy skills because the lessons are integrated with music and play and even arts and crafts for the older kids.

Each Class consists of 10 Sessions where Pre-Reading, Reading and Language Skills are taught to children across developmental stages.

The Reading Nook is located at 362-A Lirio Street, Palm Village, Makati (Rockwell Area near Colegio de Sta. Rosa). For further inquiries, please call Teacher Czari at 994-7580 or 896-5210 or mobile 0917-8137661.
