Share a Story ~ Shape a Future

Wow...things have been so busy for me lately, which means the blogging has been limited!  I almost missed the opportunity to tell you about a great event that has been taking place this week around the literacy blogosphere!  Share a Story ~ Shape a Future is an annual opportunity to share ideas and encourage each other, as well as hopefully spread the word about the importance of growing and developing children's literacies.  This year's theme is 'It Takes a Village to Raise a Reader'.  Every day a different kidlitosphere blogger hosted a topic.  You can visit each host's blog to see all of the topics and related post.  It has been a great week of sharing ideas and resources!

March 8th: The Many Faces of Reading
Host: Terry Doherty at Scrub-A-Dub-Tub

March 9th: Literacy My Way/Literacy Your Way
Host:Susan Stephenson at The Book Chook

March 10th: Just the Facts: The Non-Fiction Book Hook
Host: Sarah Mulhern at The Reading Zone

March 11th: Reading Through the Ages:  Old Favs and New Classics
Host: Donalyn Miller at The Book Whisperer

March 12th: Reading for the Next Generation
Host:  Jen Robinson at Jen Robinson's Book Page

Not only have I found some kindred spirits among these posts but also some amazing thinking and resources.  It truly does take every person in a child's life...parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle,  teacher, librarian, and the list goes raise a reader!
