Hooked on Books: Why and What to Read

Paperback / softback
This dip-in book of ideas contains invaluable advice and suggestions for parents and caregivers to ensure that their children develop a love of reading from a very young age - starting with babies, then first readers, primary readers, tweens and teens. An avid reader and book reviewer, Jay Heale shares knowledge gained in a lifetime of intimate involvement with books, with infectious enthusiasm. Included is a treasury of specially recommended books for your bookshelf, with several specific examples and classics introduced along the way. Also included are books about books, information on libraries, electronic reading material and the way in which technology has shaped the format in which we read, organisations such as IBBY and others focusing on books.
