Excellent Resources for Parents

How to Raise a Reader by Pamela Paul & Maria Russo - Wow! The authors of this valuable guide have given parents (and teachers, librarians, grandparents, children's care-givers - all who value literacy) a priceless gift. This wise, accessible, and reassuring book is packed with terrific advice, inspiring tips, and highly appealing, current book suggestions. The authors' knowledge and enthusiasm make this a true pleasure to read. HTRAR delivers on its promise to help foster a "a lifelong love of books”. Spread the word, this is a gem! (Workman Publishing Co., September 2019)

The Enchanted Hour: The Miraculous Power of Reading Aloud in the Age of Distraction by Meghan C. Gurdon - Reading aloud to children, both as a teacher and a parent, has provided me with some of the most enjoyable time that I have ever experienced.  Gurdon’s book describes, with passion and the authority, the seemingly endless benefits of this simple practice. “For everyone, reading aloud engages the mind in complex narratives; for children, it’s an irreplaceable gift that builds vocabulary, fosters imagination, and kindles a lifelong appreciation of language, stories and pictures”. Convincing research and practical advice are presented in a readable, encouraging way.  (Harper, January 2019)
