HOW TO RAISE A READER
By Pamela Paul & Maria Russo
An indispensable guide to welcoming children--from babies to teens--to a lifelong love of reading, written by Pamela Paul and Maria Russo, editors of The New York Times Book Review.
Combining clear, practical advice with inspiration, wisdom, tips, and curated reading lists, How to Raise a Reader shows you how to instill the joy and time-stopping pleasure of reading.
Divided into four sections, from baby through teen, and each illustrated by a different artist, this book offers something useful on every page, whether it's how to develop rituals around reading or build a family library, or ways to engage a reluctant reader. A fifth section, "More Books to Love: By Theme and Reading Level," is chockful of expert recommendations. Throughout, the authors debunk common myths, assuage parental fears, and deliver invaluable lessons in a positive and easy-to-act-on way.

My daughters loved the beautiful simplicity of this book. A sweet story about using talents and gifts to benefit others and discovering how that's where the true magic lies. My seven-year-old says, "It's really fun. I like how she makes sweaters for things that don't need sweaters, haha!" -Emily, mom to 3 daughters (ages 7, 5 and 2.5) Temecula, CA
