Children's Literacy Round-Up: January 26

This week’s children’s literacy and reading news round-up, brought to you by Jen Robinson’s Book Page and Scrub-a-Dub-Tub, a Reading Tub blog, is now available at Scrub-a-Dub-TubTerry Doherty has done her usual excellent job in sharing "ideas for helping families raise readers and ... tools that promote literacy."

I especially agree with Terry on this point raised in an article from the Denver Post. The article said that “a study conducted for Reach Out and Read shows that fewer than half of American parents read to their children daily.” (emphasis mine) I'm 100% with Terry that somehow, some way, that statistic has to change. The article (original source Reading Today Daily) about how libraries are helping bring urban calm to Colombia is also fascinating. But please do click through for the full round-up at Terry's. You won't be disappointed.
