Discover Exciting Worlds Through Books
1 day ago
Amy Johnson (3:44)
Science and stars; dragons and knights; tigers and turtles; magic shoes and magic carpets; and even a crazy cat in a striped hat who drops in while your mother is out. All these can be found in books – exciting worlds and possibilities available to our children each time we lead them to read. Our first guest today, blogger Amy Johnson, mother of 5 boys, talks to Rachel about why literacy and reading is so important to her as a mom. An avid reader herself, Johnson has established a pattern in her family in support of literacy. Her life goal is to make her boys as obsessed with books as she is; and judging from the dozens of books scattered all over her house, she has been successful so far. She blogs at Sunlit Pages about what she’s currently reading to her children.
