The day was started off with not one, but three great posts from Books Dads, all chronicling stories from dads and how they have experienced the gift of reading. It was so amazing reading through all of these stories, every single one coming from a DAD! Dads can be so influential to young readers, and every single one of these stories demonstrates this over and over again!
We then moved on to the second host, Dawn Little from Literacy Toolbox, to read all about the multiple meanings of a literacy gift. From there, a multitude of others have chimed in with a few gifts of their own. One of these features Moms Inspire Learning, taking a favorite classic and putting a whole new spin on it. Jen Robinson also shares about the gift of books for new parents . . . something that I already do for many baby showers, but I now have a list of other books to pull from beyond my usual Sandra Boynton and Mo Willems! And, you can't beat one of the best gifts of all . . . the library card . . . and Imagination Soup shares some of her tips when using one!
Last, but not least, we then visit with the final host, Terry Doherty of The Reading Tub. In Terry's post, she converses with a number of book-ish peeps about diversity in literature. In fact, there is so much awesomeness in this post, that I really cannot sum it all up here. Just click on over and read it all yourself!
These are just a few of my personal favorite highlights, but there is still more goodness to be had over at the daily post. Be sure to go and check it out!
