This Story Begins With A Box ....

This video from the Scholastic Inc. website is great! It makes a great point about how if a child is allowed to choose what they want to read ... how much easier it is to create a lifelong reader. While it is a way of promoting their bookclubs its also a great little video to show the importance of childhood literacy! Just thought I would share it with you :)
