Kids Caught in the Act … of READING!

Getting Kids Reading

This week’s cute kids Caught in the Act …  of READING! come courtesy of There’s A Book, DesignTrackMind, My Library Tweets, and reader, Nortina.  Thank you all!  If you have a picture of your child reading and would like to send it in, please email me at pragmaticmom.com (at) gmail (dot) com.  I am posting the pics in the order that I receive them, so I will post all the pictures eventually.  And I ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS need photos.  If you send them to me, this means I don’t have to stalk my neighbor’s kids for photos.  Seriously, do I do that?  Not yet, but maybe if I get desperate!  It could happen and only you can prevent it!
