Scholastic’s Kids and Family Reading Report is a national survey of children ages 6–17 and their parents that explores attitudes and behaviors around books and reading.

Andrea Davis Pinkney

In this episode, I’m joined by author, Vice President, and Editor-at-Large at Scholastic, Andrea Davis Pinkney. We talk about what the most recent report means for us as parents– and there’s a lot for us in there!

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • why we need to build home libraries, and how to do that without breaking the bank
  • what kids are really hoping they’ll find in the books they read
  • how to make our kids readers for life (listen until the end for five ‘Reading Resolutions’)
