I know I really want my son to be a "reader". My husband and I are bookies and I'd love for my son to have that advantage as well. There's nothing so exciting some times as a good, imaginative story! New studies show that infants and children who are spoken to at home frequently (and with complex words) are likely to become better readers and better students as they grow.
Starting April 1, a Scholastic webcast from the site Reading Rockets will be available free of charge at this link: http://www.readingrockets.org/profdev/w
I encourage all mommas who want their children to be readers to check this out when it becomes available!
