- Kristen at We Be Reading does an awesome activity with her son . . . a reading calendar! I love seeing the progress the two of them make and have started a version of my own with my oldest!!
- Over at Booklights, PBS Parents Literacy Blog, an article was written about being a model to your children. Are you a model for your's?
- Imagination Soup, one of my newest fave kidlit blogs, has a special post on her Top Seven and 1/2 Summer Books for Kids Three and Up. Be sure to check out these awesome lists before you sign up for all those summer reading programs!
