Add the Gift of Literacy to Your Holiday Shopping List.

Happy Holidays, All! 

    Remember this when you're doing your Christmas shopping: If you read to your child a single book each day, by their 5th birthday you will have read 1,825 books! 

    More importantly, it is only through reading that Hart & Risley's 30 Million Word Gap (2003) can be reduced and the effects diluted! These days, there are wonderful, diverse books -- and picture books in particular -- that make reading more fun than ever. 

    As follows, here are a few of my favorite picks both, old and new, to choose from. This holiday season, pick one up for yourself or someone you love. Happy shopping.
