It can be a book that is brand-new and not yet familiar to the other students. Or it might be a classroom favorite that the children know by heart. Good books can never be read too many times! Children benefit from being exposed to a range of readers, with different styles. And if your child is willing, let her read some of the book aloud as well. It is a chance for her to shine.

Undoubtedly your child will move on to other interests. But you have shown him that there is power in knowledge. And reading is the key.

Every day is a great day to expose your child to the many books, experienced children's librarians, and special events at a public library. But, why not celebrate?

It has been a wonderful five years. I have enjoyed sharing ideas with my readers, promoting literacy events and organizations, meeting other bloggers, and navigating the exciting world of social media.
I deeply appreciate all the friends and family who have shared their ideas about reading books, as well as their fabulous photographs of children reading alone or with others. Help me celebrate the next five years of Mad for Reading by following me on Twitter, and/or here. Send me your ideas, advice, and photographs to help spread the joys of sharing stories and loving books. Keep the world reading!
Happy birthday to all of us!
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.
