One thought on “Read To Me: Raising Kids Who Love To Read”

  1. Rather interesting and informative. It is so important to foster a love of reading in your children. Read to Me: Raising Kids Who Love to Read is meant to help you do that. It is a stepping stone for adults who might not know how best to accomplish that goal.

  2. "You may have tangible wealth untold:Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.Richer than I you can never be -I had a mother who read to me."Strickland Gillilan"Read me a story,Please read to me to sleep.""But what kind of story my dear?""Read any storyAnd I'll go to sleep,As long as I know you are near."I love these quotes in the book. They get me excited.Bernice Cullianan has some neat thoughts about reading. I have heard ideas like it before, but they hit me harder this time. "Reading allows us [...]

  3. I admit that I only read the last four chapters as my son is already nine years old. There is a lot of common sense info that most parents will already know but that does not make this a bad book. Most books about helping your child to read, or helping your child to fall in love with reading, are too general. I like that this book is broken down by age range and within each chapter there are ideas for making better readers, making better writers and reading suggestions. Yes, the reading suggesti [...]

  4. so "nothing new" ANY of us could have written it, gladly it only took a hour to read. The author did not challange herself, nor did she add anything to the 'collective' thought process about reading and reading kids. Her over all 'advice' -- to have kids that love to read, they need to be read to AND given access to things the LIKE to read independantly. REALLY!!!??? I am so glad she authored this book to tell me that, i never ever thought of either of thoese facts before -- such an eye opner!!

  5. This is a great resource for new parents that are overwhelmed with the idea that their kids are going to need to read and hopefully enjoy it. Reading books together and sharing a love for language with your child is essential for academic success and an enriched life. My hesitation with this book is the titles it provides. The titles are out of date. The books they mentioned are great, don't get me wrong, but check with your child's teacher or local librarian for more current titles to hook your [...]

  6. This is an interesting look at raising kids as readers. What I like about this title, is the "tips for busy parents" sections. It has some great games/activities parents can do with their children if they are pressed for time. For example, one that I found exciting and am eager to try is the tip to write messages to your kids. Leaving notes/poems in your childs lunch box or coat pocket are an interesting way to build their literacy skills.

  7. I think I read these books to make sure there's not something I'm missing out on, but in reality, these books should have "For Dummies" after the title. Clearly, anyone who is willing to read an entire book on raising kids to love reading knows the basics, and while this book had a few reminders of good tricks and a few books that might be fun to add to the shelf, I found it dated and a bit obvious.

  8. Cullinan's helpful insight is about what different ages of children like and are looking for in books. I noticed while looking up her book that she has a 2000 edition. I should read that since it is post Harry Potter and the internet boom. My edition is 1992 and the world of reading has vastly changed since then.

  9. It took me an hour to finish this book. It is kind of books that gives tips to do something and suggests ideas. What I like about this book that parents need not read the while book, they can read what they want to know . In other words , this book divied in to chapter according to the children's ages . The writer concentrate more on reading aloud strategy.
