Maria Russo, HOW TO RAISE A READER
Jun 8th, 2020 by zibbyowens
I loved interviewing Maria Russo. She is the former children's books editor of The New York Times Book Review, and she and co-author Pamela Paul wrote How to Raise a Reader, which is right up my alley. It was just great to talk about someone who is equally passionate about reading and teaching children to cultivate a lifelong love of reading. Maria talks about how the difficult part is ensuring children have access to a lot of different and diverse books and that's where parents can really take action, how important librarians are, and how reading is the ultimate way for us to reflect and connect.
