  1. Looks like an amazing book! Congrats on being part of it!

  2. Thank you so much for your kind comments, it means a lot. I’m very proud of the book, but I couldn’t have done it without the support of librarians like you…

  4. Hey Jason! I have a comment to make on page xvii: you say “We spend thousands of dollars on school, tutors, test prep, and supplies, the this powerful reading method [interactive reading] is an absolutely free gift that every parent can give a child after an hour or practice. But nobody is teaching parents these simple skills!”

    Children’s librarians model those skills EVERY DAY in storytime, but we’re obviously not doing good enough job of marketing what we do. Let’s scale this conversation up and yell it from the rooftops! Let’s get the message out, especially around interactive reading with new media.

  5. Great point. I will make sure there is space on my website and my digital appearances to emphasize that message.

    Throughout the book, I urge parents to visit, learn from and support their local libraries. But you are right, we need scale this conversation up and yell it from the rooftops!
