I just found a good resource titled Keep Reading Together from The Boys and Girls Clubs of America today and added it to my Reading Resources page.
I think it's so important for parents to continue to read together with their children. The link I shared will hopefully motivate parents to make time to read together with children even after they know how to read themselves.
Many readers of my blog and friends may be surprised to find out that I was not a good reader until my late twenties. I love to read now. I wish reading together was a routine in my family growing up. My mom read to me when I was little, but when I got older my reading time was a solo activity. I shared a little bit about my reading troubles when asked a few questions by LitWorld for my World Read Aloud Day Ambassador profile.
I try to listen to each of my children read aloud at least once a week. It might be a cartoon, news story, picture book, or a chapter book. Since I know the importance of reading aloud I continue to read aloud to my children ages 8, 8, and 10. Even though reading and teaching reading is my passion, sometimes it's hard to find the time to read together. We don't always have a book going, but we make it a priority once we find a good book. We are currently reading Runt by Marion Dane Bauer.
Their dad read The Castle in the Attic by Elizabeth Winthorpe in December.
