If you want your children to be brilliant, read them fairytales. If you want them to be more brilliant, read them more fairytales. -Albert Einstein
Last week, I promised you bookmarks. Ta da!
I borrowed this idea from a teacher I worked with last year. One day, while cleaning out her closet, she gave me a bookmark with this quote on it. She said she passes them out to parents at orientation after giving her spiel about the importance of reading with children. I loved the idea, and decided to make my own.
In case you love the idea as much as I did, I’ve uploaded a PDF version of the bookmarks I made to Google Docs. Just get some colorful cardstock, print, & laminate (if you wish). My hope is that these will serve as a quiet reminder/encouragement to parents to read with their children as often as they can.
