This week I'm celebrating Super Readers!

*throws confetti*



When I was pregnant with my first son, I went to our local library to hear Jim Trelease speak. I had read The Read Aloud Handbook and loved it. He shared his presentation - complete with overhead projector - and it was so great to hear him talk about reading aloud firsthand.

But as I read Every Child a Super Reader, I thought about pre-mom me and this is a book I would have loved. From the time I found out I was pregnant, I was reading aloud to my babies. If there is one thing I wanted to get right as a parent, it was making sure my kids loved reading. 

Now that the boys are almost 9 and 6, I think we've done pretty good...but there are amazing books in Every Child a Super Reader that I wish I had when I was a new mom. Even though my kids are older, I found a lot of great ideas I'm excited to try with them. This is a phenomenal resource for parents and for teachers. So many of the ideas are centered around helping kids find themselves and their way in this world but mostly about how to do that while also building their identities as readers. It's just a wonderfully heartfelt book all around. 

I'm so excited that Scholastic sent me a free copy of this too to review but also another copy to give away to a lucky reader! Be sure to enter to win below, this is a book you'll want to read and reread and share widely!
