A Family Affair
How do you build a love for reading in the whole family?
Well, you model it - of course. But there's no harm in having a little silly fun along the way. I participate in a few bloggy memes relating to reading. I'd love to get the boys involved in "It's Monday"... but that one requires a bit more work. So when Treat Tuesday came along, I knew this was the perfect one for them.
How does it work? We all select a book we want to showcase, and a treat we'd like to enjoy. One photo later and ... voila! Instant book love. (I have a Treat Tuesday live today as well, if you'd like to see what the boys and I are currently reading).
This was our first Treat Tuesday... they were hooked.
I also (sometimes) do THIRSTday with David Etkin's blog - Eat the Book.
The boys wanted to join this past week, and I forgot to post it. So this photo will go up this Thursday..
A little silly is good for the soul - and the family that giggles together reads together, right?
