303 cuốn sách phải đọc trước khi vào Đại học Mỹ

Hôm ấy, tôi dẫn cháu bé nhà tôi đến thư viện chơi thì vô tình gặp người bạn Mỹ đồng nghiệp cũng dẫn con đến. Chúng tôi trò chuyện trong khi tụi nhỏ thì chơi đùa. Trong lúc chơi, con trai của người bạn tôi gọi mẹ lại, vừa nói vừa chỉ tay lên trên tường: “Mommy, this is Yesterday, the day happened before Today”. (Mẹ ơi, đây là Ngày hôm qua, ngày đã xảy ra trước Ngày hôm nay). Tôi liếc nhìn theo thì thấy trên tường có một vòng tròn xoay đính vào có ghi chữ Yesterday. Tôi ngạc nhiên tròn xoe mắt hỏi bạn: “Ủa, con của mày biết đọc à”?. “Ừ, cháu nó biết đọc được một ít” bạn tôi khiêm tốn trả lời. Lúc ấy con người bạn tôi mới được 2 tuổi. Thực ra sau này tôi mới biết là cháu bé con bạn tôi lúc đó đã có thể đọc được hàng trăm từ. Thế là chúng tôi bắt hào hứng nói về chuyện dạy đọc cho các con…

Kể từ đó, tôi bắt đầu tìm hiểu về việc người Mỹ dạy trẻ biết đọc và yêu thích việc đọc sách như thế nào

Sau đây, APUS xin giới thiệu  303 cuốn sách phổ biến nhất mà trẻ con Mỹ cần đọc trước khi vào Đại học.
