Here are two interesting articles courtesy of Jen Robinson http://jkrbooks.typepad.com/blog/

  1. Read and be read too: Talks about the importance of reading to your child. Kids get so much of their new vocabulary though books. It is a wonderful way to connect with your child and find some peaceful time together. http://www.papertigers.org/wordpress/?p=584
  2. Encouraging children to read though book events: We had Camp Read at the elementary school that I volunteer through a month or so ago. Parents supplied the pop tents in which books were put. Members of the community (Police, firefighters, parents, volunteers) spaced them selves around the school with books and read stories. The kids loved it. This article has more creative ideas for schools looking to have some fun with reading for the day. http://cherylrainfield.com/blog/index.php/2008/03/10/encouraging-children-to-read-through-book-events/
