We all want to raise children who love to read but finding the right books is key! Once Upon a Reader is a roadmap for anyone who wants to help a new generation – from prenatal babies to young adults – foster a love of reading. Ex-bookseller and children’s book expert Lorraine Levis shows us how to talk about books with young people of all ages and how to help them find books that speak to them and the world they live in. Find out how to pick the perfect book for any child or young adult, how to balance reading and screen time, how to know when your child is ready for more advanced themes, how you can use books to help develop your relationship with the children in your life, and much more!
Once Upon a Reader also features a comprehensive list of book recommendations to help broach new and challenging experiences with children of different ages and abilities including bereavement and mental health.
