As a Children’s Librarian, I am often asked how parents can raise a child who loves to read. Today, I read a great article on the New York Times’ website by Maria Russo and Pamela Paul that gives good advice that I would like to share with all of you.
“From the moment you’re expecting your first child, you are bombarded with messages about the importance of reading. For good reason: The benefits of reading at every stage of a child’s development are well documented. Happily, raising a reader is fun, rewarding and relatively easy.”
If you’d like to read more, check out the article, “How to Raise a Reader.”
