Reading non-fiction can lead to children discovering self-directed inquiry … and naturally to enjoying even more terrific books!
Fascinating factual books help children wonder, explore and inquire about the entirety of the real world and the possibilities it offers to them.
When we show kids the WHY of reading and writing, they’ll explore and discover their way to HOW to read and write.
Teaching kids the simple and useful habit of jotting down reminders to themselves can help grow lifelong writers and readers.
When children learn how emotionally full and experientially rich reading experiences can be, they are positioned to develop into lifelong readers.
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.
