If you missed my last post, How Many Books Do You Have In Your Home?, I recommend a look. Not only does it share some interesting research that shows a strong relationship between the number of books in the home and a child’s language development, the comments that have come from readers provide additional food for thought.
This post (you may be relieved to hear) won’t be nearly as long. In fact, today let me simply offer a friendly PDF file—a “report” on reading—which provides a pretty good summary (with links to further material) of my thoughts on this important subject. Though this information has appeared in one form or another on my blog—and has been shared with other sites in a version similar to this—I thought it might help to put out a handy PDF file, too.
