Literacy Lava Erupts with Literary Treasure

Wonderful to stumble across the glorious online magazine - Literacy Lava. Edited by the literary-loving and talented Book Chook (Susan Stephenson), the magazine is a reading/writing/children's literacy-lover's delight.

Literacy Lava supports reading, writing and communicating with creativity. It aims to promote a rich and varied environment through reading, talking, writing, singing and playing - and is packed with articles on doing just this with your kids.

Issue 3 of the magazine covers how to make books with your kids, incorporating reading into shopping trips, adding literacy to game-playing, the value of picture books, incorporating writing into your family's life, library 101, and even fighting night terrors with literacy.

There's even resources and activity pages, all in a beautifully laid-out format.

Brilliant. You don't want to miss it.
