What My Children Are Reading Meme
Thanks to Sandy at Stories Are Light for giving me the idea to create this weekly feature. Want to share what your kids are reading or get ideas from other bloggers for other books to read with your children?
Create your own post on your blog, and then come to The Well-Read Child every Thursday to submit your link via Mr. Linky. You can call your post whatever you'd like as long as it relates to kids reading. For example, mine will be "What My Daughter is Reading." You can write your post anytime during the week, but the roundup will be hosted here each Thursday.
This is not exclusive to parents. Grandparents, teachers, librarians, aunts, uncles, etc., please join in. Tell me what your grandkids are reading, what your third-graders are reading, what you're reading at storytimes, etc. If your kids are older, and you don't read together that often anymore, you can share some of the favorite books they're currently reading on their own. The idea is to get the community of people who are passionate about reading with children together to share their book recommendations, experiences, and memories.
Your posts can be a list of books you're reading with your kids, books your kids are reading on their own, old favorites that get picked up again and again, summaries of your favorite books you love to read together, books you just started reading with your kids, etc.
Thanks for participating and for helping instill the joy of reading in the children in your life!
