I’m happy to be blogging for Reading Rockets, although I must admit to being a little bit self conscious about it! My goal is to blog about reading and literacy while wearing at least one of my “hats”: former teacher and university professor, parent, research consultant and early literacy author.

I’ll try to be fair and thoughtful, as I know we’ve all got the best interest of readers at heart. I hope some of you will chime in once in awhile to keep the conversation going, and keep us all thinking. I promise that I won’t write TOO often about my own two little emergent readers I’ve got here at home, although I must say, that is quite an education!

Perhaps the biggest compliment I’ve received lately was from my 6 year old, who excitedly came up to me and said, “Mommy, listen to this! I can read this book and sound JUST LIKE YOU when I do it!”
