Read.gov

Welcome to Read.gov – a site dedicated to encouraging reading by people of all ages. On the left hand side of the page, you’ll find links that break up the site by age level: Kids, Teens, Adults, and then Educators & Parents. That is a great way to get started browsing. Beneath those categories you’ll find even more categories under resources.

However, if you have kids and teenagers, it might be better have them look at the some of the featured sections on the site. I’d recommend my favorite section, Letters About Literature. By exploring that section of the site, they can discover how they can write a letter about the literature that has touched their lives for the Letters About Literature writing contest.

But even if they don’t choose to enter next year, they can read winning letters from kids in their peer group and see that they’re not the only ones who love to read. I can remember feeling like an outsider in high school, because I’d have books to read for pleasure, as well as my school books. It would have been nice to know that there were other bookworms out there like myself! This section also lets them see that it is okay for literature to touch their life. LAL also gives out grants to libraries, so you may want to let your local library know about it.

You can also find reading lists, books in progress, book festivals (I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about the idea of going to a book festival!), and even information on Braille Literacy.

If you love to read, or want to encourage your kids (or grandkids) to read, then this is a site definitely worth checking out! I’m off to learn where and when I can find a book festival near me!
