Raise A Reader

Andrea Ross of Just One More Book has a great article at called Raising A Reader, subtitled  "What's in it for me? The family that reads together..."

Ross says "Today, let's reflect on the ways reading aloud to our children benefits ourselves as parents, our families and our relationships with each other."

Go, read the whole thing!

The article is part of Canwest Raise A Reader literacy campaign; you can find more info at Ross's blog, Just One More Book.

And for those of you who think that the publisher/blogger interaction and relationship is something I unduly obsess over in terms of its negative impact on blogging, read how its negatively impacted JOMB. To the point where rather than deal with the publishers, JOMB is ending. Read the comments.

Sad to hear the couple is thinking of shutting down. I don't understand what publishers or authors have done though? I can imagine a few scenarios. Whatever they are, I hope they reconsider.

I'm not sure exactly what happened; except it seems that some publisher began to feel/act/dictate JOMB, as if JOMB were working for them.
