Summer is my favorite reading time, I love to read and spend time with exciting characters for a long period of time without a need to rush my reading. But how can we instill this love for reading into our children when books have to compete with digital tools, devices, and multimedia gadgets? Daniel Willingham at the Atlantic has a great article about it:
Change your home so that reading is the most appealing activity available.
He urges us not to put daily reading targets or to offer rewards for reading, but simply provide kids with easy access to books and giving an opportunity for us all to quiet down and enjoy a good story.
Sounds like fun!
