Book Worms

 

And now for some good news. Literacy rates in children have gone up during the pandemic. See! They’re not just screen zombies!

study in the UK found that reading skills have improved over lockdown periods and children have been reading longer books with greater difficulty. The Harry Potter series remains a favorite – in our house too.

Many children said that reading helped them feel better when they were sad about missing their friends.

Raising readers is a major priority in our house. We have two middle graders who have tackled some excellent books during the pandemic times and Natali keeps a GoodReads list of books that are appropriate for this age group. You are invited to follow it here and we welcome your suggestions!
