Bringing Up Bookworms: Tips, Tricks, and Titles

 Secrets for creating a family culture that encourages a love of reading

Last weekend, I taught an hour-long class at Pinners Conference called Bringing Up Bookworms: Tips, Tricks, and Titles. 

I've spoken at a number of conferences over the past few years, but it's always been blogging related, so it was delightful to get to talk about books and reading for a change.

My presentation was meant to give parents ideas for creating a family culture of reading from birth on, with suggestions for reading together and independently at each stage along with book titles for each of those stages.

If you're interested, you can check out the presentation here, and I've linked below all the previous blog posts that go into more detail about each of the stages I talked about, plus the books I recommended. Happy Reading!
