Three Back to School Reading Routines

It is back to school time.

Seriously.

Your family might home school. Your family might have children in a Christian or public school. But any way you look at it, this is back to school time.

And that means routines.

I hear lots of accounts of back to school routines. Some families practice getting up at a certain time. Some families spend time brushing up on basic school skills such as math facts...and reading.

Three Ways to Give Books to Needy Children

How can we support literacy development in needy children?
Today I am the blogger on Christian Children's Authors. . . 
This week I saw a promotion for free books for needy children. 
The organization placed a vending-style machine in several locations. The machine (which delivered its wares for free) was filled with books.

Fostering a Love of Reading in Children

Today I am on the Christian Children's Authors blog. . .

This week, I ate at a popular hamburger chain. The sign said that kids could read four books and them get a free hamburger.
It made me think of different kinds of reading programs I have seen.
Some of them offer a prize or a treat after reading so many pages or for so many  minutes. The prize might be a ticket to an amusement or water park.
