Paul, Pamela (author.). Russo, Maria (Maria Claire), (author.). Yaccarino, Dan, (illustrator.). Feng, Lisk, (illustrator.). Brosgol, Vera, (illustrator.). Garwood, Monica, (illustrator.).

Summary: Do you remember your first visit to where the wild things are? How about curling up for hours on end to discover the secret of the Philosopher's Stone? Combining clear, practical advice with inspiration, wisdom, tips, and curated reading lists, How to Raise a Reader, from the authors of the original and viral New York Times Books feature, shows you how to instil the joy and time-stopping pleasure of reading. Divided into four sections, from baby through teen, and each illustrated by a different artist, this book offers something useful on every page, whether it's how to develop rituals around reading or build a family library, or ways to engage a reluctant reader. A fifth section, 'More Books to Love: By Theme and Reading Level,' is chockful of expert recommendations. Throughout, the authors debunk common myths, assuage parental fears, and deliver invaluable lessons in a positive and easy-to-act-on way.
