Develop a love of Reading

Here are some helpful resources to find great books that will help you hook your kids into a love of reading:

Reading Rocket: comprehensive site funded by the U.S. Department of Education.

Storyline Online: videos featuring members of the Screen Actors Guild reading stories aloud. Obviously not a substitute for reading to your kids, but probably better than TV or video games.

International Children’s Digital Library: read over 4000 books online for free.
