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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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! : )”
