Children are as passionate as their role models are about reading. I teach first graders in a Title I school in North Carolina. Our students come from various socio-economic backgrounds. Some have shelves full of books at home, and parents who read them to sleep every night. Some have never owned a book, nor have been read to at home. It is the latter of these children, I have found, that desperately long for meaningful reading experiences. Children need to have positive connections with books early-on, to ignite a love of reading in their hearts. Once this love is initiated, it has been proven that children have a higher success rate during their school careers.
