Every Child Ready To Read: Books That Help Teach Sequencing

Children who understand that events happen in order will have an easier time remembering and understanding what they read. Sequencing is part of Narrative Skills, essential early literacy skills. Singing songs and reading books about the order in which things take place also helps children develop the mathematical concept of sequencing.
