Having begun to understand the powerful WHY of writing and reading, children begin delightedly learning about the roles that literacy can play in their lives.
Nurturing relaxed daily reading may very well be the finest contribution that a family can make in supporting a child’s development.
Encourage kids to write about their feelings and experiences. You’ll grow lifelong readers and learners if you do.
To lead children into reading proficiency, we must first activate the emotional needs that the artful language and the compelling illustrations touch in them.
Children who are not taught to access the joys and power of libraries and their books, the internet and other information sources are at a disadvantage when it comes to learning about life and the world.
Deep sources of ideas and information, like books, fortify family and community cultures.
THE central goal of a good education is joyful, daily reading and learning…for life.
Book giving should be a much more elaborate interaction between giver and the receiver than just delivering a thoughtfully selected, prettily wrapped present.
Conversation about shared experiences can develop children’s closeness with others and deepen everyone’s natural reflections about themselves and their lives.
There are simple ways adults can help kids grow up to lead fulfilling lives, like allowing them to explore their interests through reading and conversation.
