The Newbery Challenge: The Grey King
Happy Saturday! Click play to hear my thoughts on Susan Cooper's The Grey King.
Please visit Colby Sharp's blog to watch his video.
I referred to this speech during my The Grey King video.
I mentioned this interview during my video.
"I was born into a reading family. My mother was a teacher. My parents read to us before I can even remember. You just took it for granted. I had a younger brother. I think we both learned to read very early without really noticing the way kids who are read to often will. Besides that, because I was English and living in the middle of World War II we didn't play outside a lot when there was an air raid going on. So, you were inside reading. It was a matter of exposure to books, I think, which is the secret to getting
children to read." -Susan Cooper
