We all know know that we have to encourage a love of reading at a young age. 📚 I attribute my current teaching job to all the countless hours I got lost in books like: Number the Stars, The BFG, Little Women, The Secret Garden, and many more. In my desire to cultivate the love of reading with my own kids, we had a “literary fun day” with my son, nephew, and niece. We watched the end of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and then wrote our own sequels to the story. I thought the kids would revolt, but they all embraced the writing idea, and sat there for writing creatively for an hour! Then we went to @barnesandnoble and had a reading time, only to come home with Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator. It was an awesome day!
