37 Ways to Help Kids Learn to Love Reading

37 Ways to Help Kids Learn to Love Reading | eParenting and Parenting in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”

That's why we put together a presentation of some of our favorite ways to help kids learn to love reading, gathered from the contributions of Edutopia's educators and parents.
