"I would need responses back by Monday afternoon at the latest. Here is what I need, plus your real name and the city and state where you live:
Basically, I'd like to hear your thoughts on the best way to encourage reading for kids and also how to teach them how to use and respect libraries. What are some methods parents can use; how can they find out about programs at their school that they can be involved with? Do you have any specific titles that you recommend or authors you really like? What about kids who are dead set against it? Advice?"
I have parents and aunts and uncles and librarians on my friends list... let's hear it! E-mail her your answers at dawn AT wordsbydawn DOT com. I'd like to see them here as well. Mine will be forthcoming.
