New Booklights Post Today: Tip #6 for Growing Bookworms: Read Yourself

Booklights I have a new post up today at Booklights, the sixth installment in my Tips for Growing Bookworms series. Here's the gist:

"Read yourself, and model an appreciation for reading. It's all very well to SAY that books and reading are important. But what kids notice is what you DO. If you turn on the TV during every free moment, and never have time to go to the library or the bookstore, your kids are unlikely to turn to books themselves."

I close with a recommendation to set a good example for your kids by curling up with a good book. I mean, how can you go wrong with that?

Happy reading! Terry Doherty and I will be back next Monday with a new installment of the Children's Literacy Roundup.
