Nisrine’s passion for early language and literacy lead her to complete a research masters where she developed and implemented a program for preschool educators and families to build language and literacy for all children within everyday activities.
Nisrine has worked with families and preschool educators to encourage all children to interact and connect with language in books and learn about the world. The vision behind “I Have a Magic Ball” was that it could be read with groups of children and with children who may not engage with books just by sitting and listening.
Nisrine wanted to create a story that comes to life, allows children to imagine and interact by throwing, catching, and passing a ball while they read this story.
A ball is something that every child has, and she wanted them to use all their senses – touch, taste, smell, hearing, sight, and movement to develop new words and connect to the joyous world of the written word.
