It's Book Friday

As you start your holiday shopping--or make lists and plans to shop--consider buying books for everyone on your list. Personal, thoughtful, portable, and relatively inexpensive, books are a perfect gift for young and old. Is your three-year old obsessed with dinosaurs? Feed that obsession! Is your mother-in-law an avid gardener or a marathon runner? There will be books to provide inspiration. Browse the shelves or the pages of your favorite online retailer. And maybe gift yourself while you are at it. Happy shopping!

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.
