The Gift of Reading

Most Recently Read Book:

The Gift of Reading

By David Bouchard

I've been doing so much reading lately about reading. This book is another book that discusses the importance of reading with kids in and out of school. I can't say there was anything that was new but I did enjoy reading the author's relay of the information. It was really cool to hear his love of reading come out. His voice was evident throughout the entire book. I thought it was really interesting that he didn't grow up with books and how he actually used to try and pick books his teachers hadn't read so he could just make up the plot of the book when it came time to do a book report! It was good to read and to hear again how important it is for kids to read, but it was more fun to read versus enlightening to read.
