Raising Bookworms: Getting Kids Reading for Pleasure and Empowerment

My thoughts:

Growing up I read countless books on subjects that interested me including tornadoes, insects, wildlife, and of course, fictional fairy tales and other stories I could get lost in. After having children of my own, something I knew for certain was that I wanted them to be readers too–not just for school, but to actually develop a love for reading and learning for life. It couldn’t be more of a challenge, especially now in a world full of electronic competition.

In this book the author demonstrates how parents and teachers can guide children toward reading, and help establish a love for reading beginning as early as baby hood. She shares strategies for different age groups and some eye-opening statistics. There are also recommended book lists for each age group, and a resource section which includes recommended books and other publications, organizations, and websites for parents and educators.

He also expects Catherine to maintain everything around the house even though she also works as a hospital administrator.

It’s all just added stress for Catherine as she struggles to help her parents because her mom has recently suffered a stroke.

It gets to the point to where Caleb and Catherine have little respect for one another and argue constantly. Catherine bursts–she can’t take it anymore and asks to leave the marriage. In a heated argument, Caleb agrees with her. Continue reading “A to Z Challenge: Music from Favorite Films “F” Fireproof “While I’m Waiting””
