Happy New Year!! It's that time again. I love to write New Year's resolutions. Somehow, seeing the resolutions in print makes me get more serious about them. If you're looking for some resolutions related to raising a reader, see my 10 Ways to Help You Raise Kids Who Love Reading
. In my list are both a lot of strategies and some recommended books to encourage reading, including everything from children's cookbooks to The Read-Aloud Handbook
by reading aloud advocate Jim Trelease.
