THE GIFT OF READING
Linda M. Penn
Have you made your lists, checked them twice, found out who’s been naughty or nice? Yes, Santa Claus is coming to town.
Sure hope you consider the gift of books as you make your Christmas purchases. Giving a gift of reading is one of the most important gifts ever. Let’s stop and think for a minute – where would we be if we couldn’t read? However, just giving a book as a gift is not enough!
It is the gift of spending time actually reading and discussing that new bookwith your child that is important.
That quality time reading WITH your child is what can instill that love of reading in your child, carrying over to adulthood.
We as parents, grandparents, teachers, tutors, friends and volunteers must continue to be diligent in the goal of proficient readers. May we never be discouraged!
Have a blessed Christmas season and a safe and happy New Year. Come back the first week of January for the next Blog – “READING BIOGRAPHIES OF FAMOUS PEOPLE.”
God bless. Let me know any topic you would like for me to address in 2015.
