Get Wild!

We just received a new book by Donalyn Miller called Reading in the Wild: The Book Whisperer's Keys to Cultivating Lifelong Reading Habits. She has found that wild readers (lifelong readers):
1. Dedicate time to read.
2. Self-select reading material.
3. Share books and reading with other readers.
4. Have reading plans.
5. Show preferences for genres, authors, and topics.

Most people reading this post are probably "wild readers", but it is also so important to encourage any young readers in your life--neighbors, friends, random kids on the street! Let them know that their local Library has Story Times, opportunities to read to our non-judgmental dog friend Bozzie, suggested reading lists, and friendly librarians willing to make suggestions!
