Reading is an important tool for gaining knowledge. When I was a kid, my teachers provided us most of the knowledge we got. Today, my kids get most of their new knowledge by themselves, much of it by reading. In fact, I believe that getting our kids to love reading is the single most significant thing we can do for them.
Last week, I talked about two reasons for reading. Reading for information and reading for pleasure and gave tips parents can use to teach kids how to obtain the information they need.
