Dame Jacqueline Wilson says she doesn't like her books to have pink covers as it could put boys off reading them. How important is a book's cover?

Teens who choose to pick up a book for pleasure are more likely to succeed in life, research shows. But getting them to do so isn’t easy, says Jonathan Douglas.
Elizabeth Hutchinson's insight:

School Libraries and librarians have a significant roll to play. Many of us realise the importance to stocking non-curriculum based stock as we want students in our libraries.

E-readers and tablets are becoming more popular as such technologies improve, but research suggests that reading on paper still boasts unique advantages

Interesting article. It could explain why students retain less when reading from a screen. They scan rather than read the whole thing. Have to say that I have found myself doing the same thing!

The Power of a Read Aloud - Inquire Within

The Power of a Read Aloud - Inquire Within | Reading for all ages | Scoop.it

"I am an advocate of reading aloud to children, and I teach grade 5. I feel like it’s a confession. It’s the first step, and one I would hope everyone would follow.

 

In the early grades, I think most teachers read to children because they can’t read too well themselves. However, as children get older, reading aloud seems to diminish. When I ask my students in grade 5 how many of them have parents who read aloud, sometimes one child raises his or her hand. Sometimes, I have a class where no one raises their hand."
