We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day. ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce

If we all do and be the best we can every single day with kindness toward all, the heart of the world would beat with peace and happiness.

Resolve to Read

January 3, 2012

We rang in the New Year with good friends and good cheer. 2012 is upon us. Will it be a good year? My theory is it’s what we make of it. I like to take each day at a time and try to make it my best. Sometimes it may turn out to be my worst, but, no matter what, each day is always a good learning experience.

Did you make a New Year’s Resolution? Whether you did or you didn’t, here’s a suggestion that’s cheap, simple, and rewarding for all.

Resolve to read in 2012! Be a role model for those around you. Read! Read to yourself. Read to your kids. Read to anyone who will listen. Resolve to make reading exciting for young children so they learn to love reading as teenagers and adults. Read! Read! Read!

Here are a few books to ring in all types of New Years and share with children:

Squirrel’s New Year’s Resolution written by Pat Miller and illustrated by Kathi Ember (Albert Whitman & Company, 2010), Bringing in the New Year by Grace Lin (Knopf Books for Young Readers, 2008), The Runaway Wok:  A Chinese New Year Tale written by Ying Chang Compestine and illustrated by Sebastia Serra (Dutton Juvenile, 2011), Shanté Keys and the New Year’s Peas written by Gail Piernas-Davenport and illustrated by Marion Eldridge (Albert Whitman & Company, 2007)
