Family First VoiceAmerica™

How do we get our children to read books in this fast paced, digital world? Will they only know texting abbreviations or will they know the joy of reading stories which call on their imagination and engage them in deeper thoughts? Please check out my radio interview, on Family First with Host Randy Rolfe, this Friday with children's book author connie Baranzano, who has worked with hundreds of kids to help them discover the value and fun of reading and in the process build their sense of self-esteem and empowerment.

Simply go to http://www.voiceamerica.com/episode/54209/what-makes-your-child-love-reading at 1 PM Pacific or 4 PM Eastern and listen to our interview live or come back later and hear or download the show as a podcast.

Take Home Tip from Randy Rolfe: Read aloud not just to your child but with your child. Called choral reading, it is fun and easy and puts no pressure on the child, but instead engages them directly with your great modeling of the joy of reading.
