Back in 2007 I wrote a post for own blog about 10 Tips for Growing Bookworms. Over the past few months, I've been expanding upon and updating each of those original ten ideas here at Booklights. After all, helping parents to grow young readers is what we're all about at Booklights, right? It only made sense to share these tips here.
In today's post, I'm going to link to each of the 10 tips posts, as presented here at Booklights, so that they'll all be handy in one place.
It should be noted that the above tips owe a debt to the following references, all of which I read prior to writing the original post (versions updated here as appropriate). Any of these books would be an excellent place to start, in learning more about growing bookworms.
I'd also add Donalyn Miller's The Book Whisperer to my list of recommendations, of course. That hadn't been published yet when I wrote the original set of tips.
I would love to know if there are other tips that you'd like to share to help parents and teachers in encouraging young readers. In my mind, there's no particular reason why the list has to stop at ten tips, after all. Any suggestions? If anything here in the comments (or elsewhere) inspires me, I'll add further entries to the series. Thanks for reading, and for caring about growing bookworms!!
