I visited Novi High School today. I walked into a Spanish III class to listen. When there was a break in the action, two students called me to the back of the room.
They asked, quite earnestly, "Have you read this?"
When high school students give me book recommendations, I go grab the book.
Today is World Read Aloud Day 2017! The organizers say it is a day to "celebrate literacy and the pure joy and power of reading aloud."
When my children were small we tried to read aloud every single day. It provided a time for us to connect. It gave us things to talk about. It gave us things to anticipate.
Find books to read with your children. You'll be glad you did!
