Read Across America Pledge

February 6, 2012 at 1:57 pm 7 comments

My goal to Read Across America  is to discover positive websites, articles to help parents and their children. To ask YOU to participate in celebrating  “reading is a joy”. I will do my homework on special sites and of course relative topics to animals, boys with dogs, blended family issues and the efforts to encourage pet adoption. Some of the post I think I will do on my own childhood favorite books, and those I have discovered from MCA Award Winning books. Write about my past teachers who have help me with my dyslexia, and I know there are children, boys and girls that are fearful, feel uncomfortable reading outloud. Even the concern for adults who now discover that they too can learn to read through Adult Literacy Programs. Let provide the encouragement … they can over come their challenges and find the pleasure to read and write.

Read Across America begins with Dr Suess Birthday, who will read “Read with the Trees” with Lorax? The Theme is “green”. What does that mean to you? For myself being green would be to take advantage of the new EBooks formates. From Kindle to Sony each day there seems to be a new App for downloading great books for children to read. So I want to share with you a green moment. Here is a coupon code for Darby’s Story EBook ~

    So happy to have discovered you through LinkedIn’s BHB group. Your post touches me on so many levels. One of my favorite memories of raising my son in the early days was reading to him. From the earliest moments of toddlerhood, we had a “two book” ritual before bedtime. I’m convinced to this day that this early start on literacy is what has cultivated stellar reading comprehension and writing skills in him. Later as he grew up with the character of Harry Potter, we read the books aloud as a family. It remains a wonderful family memory. Even as a teenager, we read short articles of interest out loud to each other.

    On an aside, you mention dyslexia in your post. I just saw the most heartwarming movie called “Like Stars on Earth” about a young dyslexic boy who is “saved” by one very empathetic adult. It is a foreign film from India but it has subtitles.

    Thanks for such an inspiring post.

    I still keep all of my children’s Dr. Seuss books. I think that his best were The Lorax and The Sneeches, about the environment and discrimination.

    My close friend, Wally Amos (of Famous Amos cookies) founded the Read It LOUD! foundation. He has been advocating for literacy for 35 years now, traveling all over the country asking parents to pledge that they’ll read to their kids every day from birth through age six. There are some amazing statistics about the correlation between reading to children and literacy.

    Last summer, Wally wrote a short blog post on this very subject. It’s called “See Spot Run.” You might like it. You can find it at http://www.wallyamos.com/see-spot-run/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+WallyAmos+%28Wally+Amos+-+Recipes+for+Life%29

    Happy Birthday Dr. Theodor Seuss Geisel!

    Aloha,
