I’m a writer so often people ask me why kids don’t read anymore. Kids are like everyone else: If they find books that are interesting, they won’t be able to put them down.
Don’t believe me? Here’s evidence from the Maktaba Children’s Library project. This spring we hosted three months of reading circles. See little ones enjoying the oldest form of technology we have: a good story.
PS – like all good habits, reading is a love that is passed from one role model to another
Last weekend I was one of the hostesses of a baby shower. Tomorrow I’m attending as a guest at another one. Baby showers appear to be an American custom that is also spreading to other countries. In India, as well as much of the Arab world, it’s often thought inauspicious (bad luck) to celebrate a baby before his/her arrival. In many cultures there are naming ceremonies or other significant landmarks, such as Baek Il, or the baby’s 100 day mark, for Koreans. Modern science has given those of us with access to medical care the security of lower infant mortality rates.
