This week The New York Times bemoaned languishing picture books while PBS alerted me to site where anyone can help promote literacy by reading online -- over 75,000 books have been donated.
It's called We Give Books (sponsored by Penguin & Pearson Foundation) and last week the goal was about setting a record for reading The Snowy Day. Check out the picture books on that site (Jan Brett's The Mitten is a personal favorite). While these books are not as interactive (yet?!) as they could be, they are still fun to read - especially if you are cuddling up with your child.
Scholastic also recently released the 2010 Kids & Family Reading Report which talks about the appeal of digital texts.
The "reinvention of print" seems well underway on several fronts.
