Friday, March 2, marks 20 years of Read Across America celebrations, held on Dr. Suess's birthday. This is a fun day of activities, programs, live events, and a general outpouring of recognition for the role reading plays in our lives, from babies all the way up to grownups!
High-speed Internet access in schools is becoming more and more of a necessity. The wealth of educational resources found online is staggering, and students who don't have access to these resources could find themselves at a disadvantage as they continue with their academic career and beyond.
We want to know what we can do to better help teachers, librarians, and parents!
The Book Squad is here again! We invite you to join the Nomad Press Book Squad by filling out a short survey about our ideas for a new series of educational books for children ages 5 to 8.
You are invited to a free webinar all about reluctant readers! Tips on identifying reluctant readers, how to encourage them to read, and how to spot a book that a reluctant reader will love (hint: a lot of Nomad books qualify!)
Librarians all over the country are gearing up for summer reading programs. You know what that means: storytimes galore! Everyone is trying to beat the summer slide, when kids lose two to three months worth of learning over summer vacation. Studies have shown that reading is a major factor in keeping brains thriving on these hot, lazy days. And while we hope that every child is enjoying books in their own homes, the reality is that storytime might be the only chance they have to hear a really great story.
