  1. Hi Holly! Next week is our 4th annual Literacy Blog Tour, Share a Story – Shape a Future. Bloggers from around the world will be sharing tips and ideas for encouraging and supporting kids who are learning to read, those who struggle or don’t like reading … or those who don’t want people to know they like reading!

    Here’s our blogsite:

    Having kids partake in reading is important of course. Yet what I find that motivates my children most is the power of choice. Children are born explorers. By empowering them to choose what they’d like to read, it enables them to independently seek out more books of interest as well. I’d also recommend trying different avenues of discovery to achieve literacy. For example, reading comic books. A wonderful documentary film called “Comic Book Literacy” provides unique insight about the concept.

  3. By incorporating fast paced creative comics that help teach kids, seem to be popular from my experience. Although my real job is at UC Davis, I created a kid friendly comic for my children when they were young called Ranger Ralph. I have created 3 comics so far, and anyone can look through them for FREE on my web site. I am getting ready to release comic 4 & 5 in color later this year if all goes well, and still give them out at the many talks I do at schools here in CA.

  4. The Ranger Ralph comic can be viewed at this link:

  5. I am sure this paragraph has touched all the internet users, its really
    really fastidious article on building up new website.

  6. When choosing reading materials for emergent readers, look for books at the appropriate reading level. It is important that new readers experience success instead of frustration. Also, it helps if an adult can read the book to the emergent reader before asking the emergent reader to read the book aloud.

  7. Simply want to say your article is as astounding.
    The clarity in your post is simply great and i can assume you are an expert
    on this subject. Well with your permission allow me to grab your RSS feed to keep up to date with
    forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please carry on the gratifying work.
