#BLF2019# BABIES TO BOOKWORMS

BABIES TO BOOKWORMS: RAISING KIDS TO READ IN THE DIGITAL ERA
Antoinette Portis, Sarah Brennan

Tuesday, March 26, 6:00 PM
60 RMB | BW 26-1 | The Bookworm – TICKETS

In today’s digital era it can be a battle to get children to read physical books and drop their devices. In the face of the perceived overuse of technology many parents and teachers have concerns about critical reasoning, attention span, empathy, reflection and intellectual development. In this session two best- selling children’s authors will discuss this phenomenon and ways that can engender a lifelong love of reading. They will also look at the science concerning what reading does for the brain, as opposed to digital technologies. And also discuss that it is not only important that we read with children, but also how we read with children. Join American author Antoinette Portis, author and illustrator of New York Times bestsellers like Not a Box; and Australian Sarah Brennan, author of the best-selling Chinese Calendar Tales and the Dirty Story series to discuss.

From our friends at Great Leap, BLF Happy Hour!
All tickets for 6:00 pm events this week can enjoy one of our Great Leap drafts as their complimentary welcome drink.
