Kids Caught in the Act … of READING

Getting Kids Reading Everywhere

Thanks for checking out my weekly Monday feature:  Caught in the Act … of READING!  What is so great in this week’s pictures is how kids don’t let anything get in the way of reading, even kids who would say that reading is not their favorite thing to do.  And I love how Jill of is helping her son to create his own series of books.  I’m sure these will be cherished items both now at bedtime and in the keepsake box when her son is old enough to read to his own children!  Keep up the great work getting your kids to read parents!  It’s definitely working!

Waiting at the train station in Varanasi, India for the Magadh Express to New Delhi, following a portion of the same route as Phileas Fogg in Jules Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days.

Now wouldn’t it be perfect if Issie were actually reading Around the World in Eighty Days?!!  Maybe she is …

Reading at the local pub, aptly named, The Local!  Nice job bringing a book to the restaurant mom!

The beauty of The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series!

Max and August try to get in a few more chapters before the last soccer game of the season.  When a book is that good, it can’t wait!

Sibling rivalry:  Sam is inspired to read too!  He’s sitting next to Max and August.

Attached is a photo of my four-year-old holding up one of the books we created together.  We are on installment 12 today.  He came up with the idea where he staples several sheets of paper together and illustrates each page, then we sit down and collaborate on the story to go with his drawings.  His Daddy and big brother look forward to coming home every afternoon to see what our “book du jour” will be.  : ) Jill at
