Welcome to this latest attempt to connect librarians from west-central Wisconsin with each other! Please send in content (booklists, ideas, photos, etc.), and comment on posts so we can help each other. If you were using feedmyinbox to get new posts sent to you before, you'll need to switch to another service (blogtrottr works like feedmyinbox, googlereader is a good blog-reader to try).

Read Aloud 15 Minutes Campaign

A parent and child at Phillips' "Books Are Magic" Party
In 2012, Read Aloud began a decade-long campaign to make reading aloud for 15 minutes/day the new parenting standard--likening the campaign to those designed to make daily toothbrushing a part of the routine, and carseat and seatbelt use ubiquitous.

"Read aloud.  15 minutes.  Every Child.  Every Parent.  Every Day."

The campaign has some free downloadable posters and some great arguments for a nationwide effort in this direction.  Take a peek!
