“Finding the right book at the right time can light an emotional spark within children that motivates them to read more, understand more, and read joyfully. When that happens, the world opens. Everything becomes possible.”

Scholastic has created a new movement to encourage the love of reading in kids called the Open a World of Possible. On the website you’ll find short videos of teachers, children, and celebrities talking about their love of reading. You can also find parent resources, research, and a link to download the free eBook. Obviously, as a children’s librarian, I love encouraging reading and there’s nothing better than finding that right book for a kid and knowing you made just a little bit of a difference.
