A program for parents and professionals on how to raise kids who love to read, featuring interviews with childhood development experts, advice from librarians, tips from authors and childrens book publishers, and reading recommendations for kids from birth up to age five.

Every parent wants to give his or her child a competitive advantage. In Born Reading, publishing insider (and new dad) Jason Boog explains how that can be as simple as opening a book. Studies have shown that interactive readinga method that creates dialogue as you read togethercan raise a childs IQ by more than six points. In fact, interactive reading can have just as much of a determining factor on a childs IQ as vitamins and a healthy diet. But theres no book that takes the cutting-edge research on interactive reading and shows parents, teachers, and librarians how to apply it to their day-to-day lives with kids, until now.

Born Reading provides step-by-step instructions on interactive reading and advice for developing your childs interest in books from the time they are born. Boog has done the research, talked with the leading experts in child development, and worked with them to compile the Born Reading Essential Books lists, offering specific titles tailored to the interests and passions of kids from birth to age five. But reading can take many formsprint books as well as ebooks and appsand Born Reading also includes tips on how to use technology the right way to help (not hinder) your childs intellectual development. Parents will find advice on which educational apps best supplement their childs development, when to start introducing digital reading to their child, and how to use tech to help create the readers of tomorrow.

Born Reading will show anyone who loves kids how to make sure the children they care about are building a powerful foundation in literacy from the beginning of life.
