Yikes, I am almost out of pics of kids caught in the act of reading!!! Please, please, please take pity on me and send more to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
And thank you to the nice people who sent in photos for this week! I know two of them; middle grade author Karen Day and Mama C and the Boys whose excellent blog arrives daily into my email box! Thank you to readers Elizabeth and Hope for their cuties caught in the act of reading!
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!
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!!
