Reading with Kids

I have belatedly caught up with Reading with Kids, last weekend’s Guardian and Observer supplements on encouraging reading. Definitely worth a look. There are lots of tips on good books for different ages. Having had a book-loving four year-old to stay over the last few days, I can  testify to the appeal of many of the recommended picture books. There are also a number of valuable articles. These are two I found especially interesting: how technology can benefit children’s books and the appeal of dystopian fiction to young adults.
