Day 2 Share a Story-Shape a Future: How Do We Select Reading Material

Wow!  Day 2 of Share a Story – Shape a Future is up and running!  Day 1 was a rousing success, and Day 2 looks to be just as good. :)

As Terry said yesterday, it all starts with raising readers.  By surrounding children with text and stories, we are helping them blossom into the readers they can and should be.  So maybe yesterday you decided to set aside some time every day or so to read with your children.  But now you are overwhelmed- where do you begin?  How do you find books to read?  How do you know what books your child will enjoy sharing with you?  

Today’s bloggers have fantastic ideas and suggestions for selecting reading material for different age groups.   Whether you need booklists, story ideas for pre-readers, help selecting books for middle graders, or ways to incorporate your love of non-fiction into read-aloud time, there is something for everyone today. So grab a cup of coffee, maybe a snack, and sit back to enjoy the amazing posts today.  We even have some giveaways for you!

As posts go live, I will add the links.
