It takes commitment - perhaps even a touch of stubbornness - to raise a reader. Just ask JimBrozina, father of Alice Ozma, who details their 3,218-night read-aloud streak in her well-loved book The Reading Promise. Reading was the glue that held their family together.
Scholastic Book Fairs' new, no-cost Raising Readers program cuts to the heart of reading instruction: reading stories as the centerpiece of reading instruction in the classroom and in the home. And through workshops and downloadable three-step handouts, parents learn the critical role they play in their children's education.
