really liked it
bookshelves: library-journal, books-i-own
Read from December 29, 2010 to January 30, 2011

Really enjoyed this look at the different stages of reading. The bibliography provided me with even more books I want to add to my list of reading! Essentially, the authors advice for creating a family of readers is to be a reader yourself-model the behavior that you want to see in your child and allowing them to pick books they are interested in reading exactly the way that you as a reader does,

"The best way to understand how children read is to read for yourself."

"Only by experience it (a book) as a reader--not a grown-up, not a parent--will you be in a position to recommend it to another: not a child, but a fellow reader."
