An Article to Read

I want to share an interesting article with you. It was written by Pam Allyn, the director of LitWorld. It resonated with me--and I think will resonate with anyone who has ever felt on the outside of things at some point. As always, Pam's writing speaks to the power of books and storytelling to capture the human experience.


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.
