Books -- Jon Scieszka named Ambassador for Reading

I just saw this at Tasha Saecker's blog, Kids Lit. This guy is exactly right about getting kids to read and I'm thrilled he's speaking out against computers and high-tech solutions that have proven to increase non-reading! My public library has more computers (and folks glued to the screen) than space for books ... a many-times-weekly irritant! I'm wondering if allowing my almost-9-year-old to play computers since a young age has created the reluctant reader I have on my hands now?

Here's more about the "job" he's been named to fill -- a 2-year assignment to bring reading to kids!
