Have you been evaluating your home library with me this week? All week at Ready-set-read.com I am sharing a series on building a home library. On days 1 and 3, I shared some organziational and space saving tips. On day 2, I touched on building variety into your library. Today I am sharing even more variety. Sometimes the reading that occurs in your home will not happen within library bound text. Instead, reading may happen while your child reads instructional manuals, joke books, or cooks supper with you. Challenge yourself today to look for the variety that is in your own home library. And now, building a home library, P-T.
