Share a Story ~ Shape a Future

Share a Story is an annual literacy blog tour with the goals of celebrating reading and communicating practical, usable, literacy ideas.  It is a one-week event that launches the second full week of March. There are five literacy and/or reading themes for the week. Each day one blogger hosts the theme. Moms, dads, librarians, teachers, reading specialists, literacy advocates, anyone with a (noncommercial) interest in reading and kids share their ideas about that topic.
