March is Reading Month, Tip #14: Read with a Buddy!

Fran and Claude, reading buddies (from Fall 2010).
Read with a Buddy!

There's nothing better than finding a buddy to read with. Buddy reading can be a way to rally a beginning reader. Buddy readers can share one copy of the book and read together, or read apart and come back to talk. They can sit next to each other, reading different books. Buddy reading can be a family reading the Sunday paper sprawled about the living room; it can be a friend you browse bookstores with.

Just like exercise programs (and diets) often go better with a buddy, so does a reading life. Find a buddy and talk and read togther!
