Read, Kids, Read

Saw that another ZA posted this on her page earlier and wanted to share with everyone. It really is a great article.

Columnist Frank Bruni offers some sad new research on children’s reading habits and makes the case for improving these numbers.

As he points out from scientific research, “reading and intelligence have a relationship so close as to be symbiotic.”

Any ideas on how we can get our children reading more?
