Summary Wadham provides resources for introducing younger children to literature in a public library or school library setting. By reading poems out loud together, and then introducing books and activities on the poem's theme, he noticed improved vocabulary and verbal skills, and a progression in the children's literacy skills. He also introduces the Shared Warmth program, which encourages families to read together.-- (Source of description not identified)
