This week we have some cuties reading by themselves, with their older brother, with friends on a play date (most unusual for these sporty boys to be reading and not whacking balls around), and yours truly reading with my youngest when he was Star of the Week. Enjoy!
Thank you for sending in photos GeekMom , Mama and the Boys, and There’s a Book. I can’t do this weekly Monday feature with your help, so please keep the photos coming.
Gifts for kids around $20.
So when @IanChia on Twitter sent this article to me, Children distracted from reading by TV and computers, I fully agreed with its premise. Yes, that is exactly what happened to us on our trip. I would have had more pictures of kids caught in the act of reading since my husband and I had our camera and iPhone on the ready, but … they just didn’t read much so there was not much to catch. These kids did do some reading though! Kudos to their parents for pulling that off! I wish I could say the same!
Thanks for checking out this week’s Caught in the Act … of READING! What is so great in this week’s pictures of 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 MomsGoneGlobal.com 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!
Thank you to everyone who sent in pictures of kids Caught in the Act … of READING both last week and for this week. Here they are! If you want your child (and it doesn’t have to be your own) featured next week, please send me a link or a photo to pragmaticmom.com (at) gmail.com. Replace the (at) with @. Thanks so much!!
Please send me photos of any child Caught in the Act … of READING! You can include any information you want (or not): title of book, age of child, if he or she would recommend the book to a friend, etc. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be posting photos in this theme every Monday. Thank you so much for your photos!!!
Thank you to all my readers this past year. And thank you to the dogs that help socialize my dog. I appreciate you coming to my site and hope that I will see you again soon! Expect to see some consistency of features and I hope to get you, the reader, to participate in some of my new weekly features.
If you know a child or have a child that LOVES office supplies, this might be the perfect gift! And the guise is so educational that it would make the parents happy as well!
