Too Late for Summer Reading?

When I was on the North Shore last winter I met Surf Dog. While my little girl was still just a bun in the oven, I learned how important it is to encourage reading in children, even infants. Surf Dog travels around his home Island of Oahu or has off-island excursions. He meets new people, learns new things about our world and writes about them on his blog. You can't beat exciting new experiences as the ultimate encouragement to read.

Check out Surf Dog. He's in San Francisco now. And when you head back to school in just a few weeks you can tell the tale of Surf Dog.
