Summer Reading Fun

Did you know . . . “Fewer than half (48%) of young children in the U.S. are read to daily, meaning that more than 13 million children under 5 go to bed every night without a bedtime story.”

Did you know that reading aloud to a child can change his or her life?

I first posted about summer reading during the summer of 2012. This month, I will be posting read-aloud tips, facts and fun for you and your kids, grand kids, friends and neighbors’ kids or nieces and nephews. Summer is the perfect time to begin the read-aloud habit, and it’s a great way to keep school-age kids interested and involved over the summer break.

Reading aloud is a personal passion of mine and was a professional project for me for about 10 years. We read to our sons every night and presenting read-aloud workshops and promotions was one of my favorite public relations projects – EVER!

Reading is free, it’s fun and it can change lives.  Read all about it, right here at Wishful Thinking Works over the next few Mondays in June. Share the posts with your family and friends. My wish for the summer is to help you make reading aloud part of the life you, and the kids you care about, really want.


What’s your child’s favorite book? (Include your child’s age, so others can use your recommendation.)

Did you have a favorite book as a kid, if so, what is it?
