Scandinavian Crime Novels

This winter, instead of complaining, take some inspiration from a region well versed in cold, dark days: Scandinavia.  You may have heard of the concept of "hygge" (it's untranslatable, but "cozy" comes close): warm socks, a glowing fireplace, hot cocoa, and a good Scandinavian crime novel - the scarier the better!

Singing

If you want to make something easy to learn or memorize, present it as a song. Singing, like talking, allows children to participate in storytelling. There are many books that use song lyrics as text. Whether the book uses the lyrics as-is (Twinkle Twinkle Little Star by James Dean) or adapts the lyrics with a new twist (The Wheels on the Tuk Tuk by Surishtha Seghal), these books inspired by songs give children an accessible way to learn, and even memorize, stories and fascinating facts.

Talking

Anyone who has been around children knows that children love to talk. Harness this energy by including stories with repetitive sentences or phrases, animal sounds, or onomatopoeia. Encourage children to join you in telling the story. Giving children opportunities to speak during story heightens their enthusiasm, participation, and involvement with the books being read. It also gives them a sense of how stories are told, which will help them when they begin reading books on their own.
