I’d Like to Know What You’ve Learned*

Regular readers of this blog will know I’m a big fan of Margot Kinberg and her blog, Confessions of a Mystery novelist. Here I share Margot’s wonderful recent post on raising children who read.

    It’s a great piece, true, as is the blog that it is excerpted from. Since I was an avid child reader, I give friends’ and neighbors’ children books and enjoy seeing photos of them looking at or reading them. The comments on COAMN from parents whose children and grandchildren love to read are wonderful, including yours about your then 2 1/2-year-old daughter.
    What a joy for a child to discover reading and love books.
    And, another thing, not only giving books for charitable reasons, but I’ve given books to my local library to sell so they can buy more books. But, also, the joy of sharing books with friends is equally important. I never think getting one read out of a book is enough, and am glad to share.
