I want to thank all the individuals who participated in the weeklong workshops. I was impressed with your enthusiasm and your eager participation. You came to each workshop, energized and ready to learn how to best Conversationally Read with your children.

~ Learning to ask good questions is an essential skill; questions determine the quality of our thinking
~ Reading and talking about books with children give them the attention they need to thrive and is one of the ways we show children love and respect.
