The only joy greater than reading a good book, perhaps, is writing your own. And, writing a book challenges children to use all their literacy skills. Staple pieces of paper together, give your child a pencil, some crayons and a space to become the author of their own book. Then have your child read the book aloud to you, a sibling, a pet or a stuffed animal. It might be fun to have your child add an "About the Author" note on the back page of the book. Happy writing and reading!
