Are you familiar with this book?? I wasn't til someone on a homeschooling message board recommended reading it! I just picked up from the library today! From what I gather from skimming thru it just briefly....it is a book that helps you to understand that every child can become an avid reader. It answers common questions about doubts, it gives tips on how to get children into books! It boosts about discovering the rewards that come from reading and the importance of reading aloud.
Little did I realize that Mr. Trelease has a website set up with all the same information that is in the book plus new reviews of books that are not in the last edition of his book!
He has a Weekly Read-Aloud Book review and Weekly Education Essay.
He has articles about different debates that are going on in the Educator's arena--like the No Child Left Behind, Censorship, on-line reading vs. offline, and even research on the effects of "screen time"(TVs, Videos, Computers). I found many different and interesting articles that even as a homeschooling parent I found to be interesting to read.
You can purchase CDs and DVDs of his past lectures.
You can even find out how to make Rain Gutter Bookshelves!!!
So if you are looking for information on reading or looking for a good book to read aloud to your kids....check out his site!!!!
