Presentation: READING SERIOUSLY ROCKS

Save the date for my presentation at the Flower Mound Public Library on Tuesday, June 12th @ 7 PM.  Here are the details:


READING SERIOUSLY ROCKS:  
How to Unleash the Inner Reader in Just About Any Kid
& Why It's So Very Important
* for parents & educators*

The statistics are irrefutable -- reading should come first in our priorities for children.  For a myriad of reasons, however, it’s difficult for parents and educators to motivate kids (especially pre-teens and teens!) to put reading first.  What works for one child doesn’t work for another, others have significant reading challenges, and finally – let’s face it – some are simply incorrigible. 

But where there are new ideas, there is hope!  In preparation for this presentation, Susie conducted a nationwide poll and gathered tons of awesome ideas on:  1) How to motivate kids to read, and 2) How to tackle reading challenges (both big and small) in children.  Susie shares all of these ideas plus several successful (and since this is real life, not so successful) attempts to get her very own kids to learn to love books and reading.

This nationwide poll also resulted in a fabulous book list for kids and teens that Susie has affectionately titled, “Moms Weigh In:  Books We Adore.”  In addition to this list, Susie shares more of her favorite book and reading resources that can assist parents and educators as they help the children in their lives be more successful (and enthusiastic!) readers.
