I'm still celebrating International Literacy Day, because it's September 8 in other places in the world! Like Dumbledore, I truly believe the best gift we can give our kids is to read to them every day.
If you're interested in encouraging children to read, you might like my articles: What's So Great About Children's Literature Anyway, Help Kids Become Readers and Writers, or The Reader's Bill of Rights.
Sometimes parents write to the Book Chook with problems they want to share. Reading-related problems are found in Letter to the Book Chook - Free Reading Material, Letter to the Book Chook - Reading Challenge or Reading Chore, and Letter to the Book Chook.
Did you miss: Literacy Lava 6, a free zine for parents, teachers and all who are passionate about children's literacy and learning? You can grab it at my website.
You can also check out my latest book reviews in the Yahoo Pipes widget top left, or just browse!
Tomorrow will bring the first in my new Creative Prompt Series. I hope you and your kids will join in so we can all challenge ourselves to be more creative.
