HOOKED FOR LIFE
At Tenafly Junior High School we had a club called Future Teachers of America. This piece in the NYT, “Read to a Tiny Baby? Yes,” ought to be the first flyer for the Future Readers of America. One great bit from the story:
Reading is a habit best formed early. A child who is read to from infancy is a child who has never known a world without books and one who associates reading with the pleasure and comfort of home.
Read early, read often. That’s a message every parent ought to hear.
Amen to that.
