Though I'm taking a break from blogging, I couldn't resist sharing this link to a nerdily awesome post by the amazing and thoughtful Donalyn Miller, aka The Book Whisperer.
I think about how much time and energy we adults put in to encouraging our kids in their sports, music, hobbies, etc., and I think Donalyn hits the nail on the head. Though she says it in her own eloquent way, she's basically encouraging us to be the Little League coaches of our kids' reading lives.
Go. Now. Read her post.
