EPUB EBook by Emma Walton Hamilton
EBook DescriptionThe glowing recommendations from librarians on the cover raised my expectations for this book, and they were not fully met. Raising Bookworms EPUB EBookI enjoyed hearing her interview on NPR and very much enjoyed the portions of the book when she was on her "soapbox."I wish there had been more of her commentary on those issues (TV, "dark" books for children) and a lot less repetition.
Having checked this out from the library, I read it as a book, when I think it is best used as a reference.She repeats the strategies for making reading a joyful experience for each age group, so you see the same thing four times.I almost returned it after reading the baby chapter where her helpful ideas were use board books, animal books, rhyming books, ABC books, and make your own photo albums - EPUB uh, duh!Thankfully, the suggestions got better in the older age groups (time capsules, family trees, cooking projects) and I'll definitely use the lists of recommended books.
I remain shocked by the statistics she shares."Eighty percent of US families did not buy or read a book last year.Seventy percent of US adults have not been in a bookstore in the past 5 years. Forty-two percent of college graduates never read another book once they have graduated."I really can't fathom any of these and wish she had spent more time discussing them and making an action plan instead of telling us to make a cozy reading nook four times.
