Kids Caught in the Act … of READING

Getting Kids to Read

I’m back from school vacation week and ready to resume my weekly features with a twist. They are now going to be weekly-ish. Yes, like the Ish! book by Peter Reynolds, a facsimile of the real thing because it turns out to be a frantic pace to be posting weekly. I’m assuming overwhelming for you, my readers too! 🙂 In the meantime, I am cooking up another idea for a blog children’s literature so please stay tuned…

Thank you to everyone who sent in pictures! And please keep them coming! You can email them to me at pragmaticmom.com@gmail.com.

Robin sends in a picture of her 12-year-old son reading by candle light…[which] warms the cockles of my heart…

and her daughter is caught reading classic old-fashioned fairy tales!

My dad friend Dan from my first job a million years ago sends in this picture of his son, reading happily at home (much like his well read dad!).

Jill from MomsGoneGlobal (an excellent multi-cultural blog that I like a lot!) writes, “Hi!  Today, the boys and I were at the library to stock up on reading material. They were super excited to find the dinosaur section so they grabbed a stack of books and planted themselves right in front of the shelves to pore over them.  Of course, I thought of your “Caught in the Act” series and captured the moment.  Thanks again for the inspiration!  : )”
Ish by Peter Reynolds, a great picture book for budding artists, particularly those sensitive to criticism of their work.

    Love seeing kids reading!

    This is my first time visiting your blog – I am big on education and getting into kidlit, so I will definitely be back!

    • To Brandon,
      Thank you! Tomorrow, I will have kids reading to their pets after coming across some programs at libraries that use service dogs as non-judging audience members for kids who are reluctant to read aloud. I might do a series of these kinds of pics for a few weeks if they keep coming in. Love the concept and seeing kids with pets reading together!

  2. Thank you for the kind words Mia! I cannot wait to see what your new Children’s literature blog idea is all about! Regarding your features, I must tell you that I am always amazed by the pace at which you publish such high quality and content-rich posts! You have created a truly outstanding, productive and useful blog!
