New holiday tradition revolves around reading
| Dec 10, 2010
Amy Dickinson, author of the “Ask Amy” column in The Washington Post, is asking families to participate in her “A Book on Every Bed” campaign. The idea of this campaign is an appeal to spread the love of reading from parents to children and also to encourage families to share books by reading aloud. All you have to do is take a book, wrap it, and place it on a child's bed so it's the first thing she or he sees on Christmas morning (or whatever holiday you celebrate). It's that simple.
Dickinson is working with the Family Reading Partnership to spread the word about the importance of reading with children. The goal is for a million American children to wake up to find a wrapped book on their beds. To read the full article, visit The Washington Post online.
