It is a brand new year--and a new decade as well. Resolve to make this the year you and your child have the most fun ever, reading books, spending time together, and learning about each other.

My resolution? I plan to share my ideas for ways to make the most of the time you spend reading with your young child. I hope that you will share your ideas, your questions, and maybe even your photos, too.

Make some great memories and lots of fun.

Happy 2010!


  1. Welcome to the world of blogging about children and families and reading! Delighted to know you will be sharing ideas.

  2. Madeline, Love your new blog. Looking forward to reading many more posts. I'll share them with the wider literacy audience.


What I think . . .

There are all kinds of readers. Some—like my daughter and me—are never without a book to read for pleasure. Others—like my son—are careful, analytical, and curious readers who read primarily to seek information from the page.

No matter what kind of reader your child becomes, you can help him or her get started. After all, you are your child’s first teacher. And, best of all, you can have some fun in the process.

Please feel free to share your own ideas. Tell me about ways you've enjoyed reading with your child.
