I used to go to bookstores. Took my daughter ..She loved browsing as I did<quoted text>Great site - used it A LOT when I was teaching.
Kids would much rather read something on the internet than in a book....doesn't make any difference to me, as long as they're READING...
Met this,couple who owned one..I would get books and on this,one kind she liked he wouldn't order for me..so I COUKD buy them as I could ..mine also..this went on from the time she was 10
I wound up working there part time..they were like second parents to me.
They watched her grow up ..when she was a senior this msn told Mr
I have owned or run bookstores for decades ..seen lots,of kids..
The ones who love reading usually don't get into trouble and do very well in school. They always have something they love to do ..something to keep their minds busy
My kid was valedictorian in her HIGH SCHOOL..
She wound up going to a,small college I never heard of that this,mans son had gone to.(coincidence or plan ??)
Anyhow at that school she met her husband .
But his words rang true on the reading .
If you nurtured that in your students ..You gave them a great gift :)
Now the poor girl barely has time to read but loves it still
