Reading is Not Optional

Author, Walter Dean Myers, was sworn-in yesterday as the nation’s third Ambassador for Young People’s Literature at the Library of Congress.  His slogan for the two-year post is “Reading is Not Optional.” In an interview with David Greene from NPR, Myers stressed the importance of early literacy by saying,   “Well, one of the things that I want to do is to get very, very young kids being read to; 3 months, 4months.”  Congratulations to Ambassador Myers.  Myers is the author of the award winning book, Monster.
