Back to the idea of making your kids smarter. I found a few interesting links about the topic.
One in Salon: “Book owners have smarter kids – When it comes to your children, the books in your house matter more than your education or income”, another has 40 excerpts from Jim Trelease’s book “The Read Aloud Handbook”, and if you’re willing to work for it, the NEA release a comprehensive analysis report of reading patterns of children, teenagers, and adults called “To Read or Not To Read: A Question of National Consequence”. A little dry, but worth… er, reading.
