If you read, your children will read

It's been so long since I've made a sale that I'd almost forgotten what it was like to be featured in a magazine or newspaper. But this month's (March) lead story in the local magazine Baltimore's Child is an article about me.

The interviewer was the lovely Susan Davis, assistant Editor of Baltimore's Child and a constant user of the library where I work. She's also very active in homeschooling circles. A busy lady, indeed.

Repeating part of the interview:
How do you get a child to read?
By modeling reading yourself. Read, read, read.
By having books laying around the house, on shelves, in the dining room, in the bathroom, in the bedrooms.

The problem at our house isn't how to get the 9-year old to read. It's how to get her to stop reading and Go To Sleep!
