My son is a reader already, so I am one of those lucky parents who doesn't need to encourage her child to read more...but I still encourage him to read more.

In other words: My Mother is right. As usual.

My son is getting a little older and his camp and school start later in the morning than my school started when I was his age. Could he stay up that last half-hour of his day and read? I am sure it is worth the try to see how it goes. Thanks, Mom!

How do you fit more time for reading into your child's day? Tell me in the comments.
