Atherton and Taylor are two girls who want to play ball in the pros. Will they "make it"?
Atherton and Taylor is an original and well-bred tale for children aged 5 and up. It is a fresh allegory that employs simple, but complex vocabulary, common figures of speech, and a theme that shows affectivity and personal character.
Even though children must learn how to read, they must also be taught how to identify and signify verbal meaning by reading on levels that can best be described as the explicit, the implicit, and the synthetic.
In the end, reading well or being fully literate is a matter of children (5 and up) becoming aware of and having practice at mining words and groups of words for information, meaning, and even questions.
Atherton and Taylor is an innovative, yet classic primer whose value lies in entertaining and educating young children to become savvy readers.
