Jen Robinson has a wonderful, thoughtful post and discussion going on at her blog, about how can we encourage reading aloud. Most of us agree that it’s important to read aloud to kids, to help them learn to love reading. Check out Jen’s post for some inspiring ideas, or to join in on the discussion.
I *love* the idea of an international campaign to encourage kids to read. I’m thinking internet ads, maybe an email ad, even radio…. Bookstore bookmarks, or printable bookmarks, that kind of thing.
What do you think? How would you encourage parents and others to read aloud to kids? Do you like the idea of a campaign?
