  1. I love idea #8. I do several of the other ideas already, but it hadn’t occurred to me to get my son talking about what he’s reading by asking him questions about it. Thanks for the ideas! (:

  2. I loved these ideas. The best part is they can be done with children of all ages. A lot of parents don’t read or talk with their babies or sometimes even children and they don’t realize how important reading is. How old is your son?

  3. Thanks for the reblog – I really liked this list too. I would add to #7 though! Writing is great for children, but one way to engage them further with writing tasks is to have them write directly to OR from the perspective of characters in the books that they love.

  4. Thanks for following my blog. I love your site and am following it as well. I would LOVE to feature you as a guest post sometime in the near future. Your activities are spot on for the tone of my blog. How can I get in touch?
