Read as I Read

A new study confirms the importance of the role that modeling reading behavior plays in raising readers. ". . . Parents who read more for pleasure read more often to their kids, and that both of these parental behaviors were also related to their children’s literacy skills."

Read all about the study here.

And most important, keep reading with your young child--and for yourself!

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.
