It's not only about reading to them

(Edward Ardizzone's drawing of young Eleanor Farjeon reading, in The Little Bookroom)

Ragamuffin studies has a post about Becoming a Reader: The Politics and the Reality. Read it, read the comments. It's very eye-opening. Then go read something else; read something to yourself, read something to your kids that's ranked above a grade 4 reading level. Just to be subversive.

Or go do something completely different with them--because you are the parent. See? I get it.

Hi, Mama Squirrel,

And thanks for the link. I followed a couple of yours was treated to re-reading your November Book Talk post--it is so good!--and also reading a post I had missed.

A great afternoon of reading. And it was nice.
