Learning to read is a skill. Loving to read is a way of life. Reading brings us closer together; it can take us to places far away. Reading is the key to achievement and imagination, to understanding and to aspiration. A book is a science laboratory, an art museum, a guided tour through history, a great friend. Books put the magic in the carpet ride.
It’s no secret that kids imitate their parents. Show your child that reading matters – to you. Show them just how irresistible a good book can be.
What We’ve Been Reading will feature new book reviews, spotlight what librarians around the country are featuring on their shelves, and offer groupings of book reviews about subjects near and dear to children of all ages.
So pull together a few books, snuggle in on the couch or under a favorite tree, turn to the first page and let the magic begin.
